Live Alexandria: Outdoor dining in the city!

Spring has sprung, and that means outdoor dining in the city!

If you’re a local, you already know that one of the fabulous perks of Alexandria life is the outdoor dining scene. Sidewalk seating and cafes are part of what makes this city special.

If you haven’t had a chance to reserve a table at some of my favorites, what are you waiting for? There’s only one rule… you have to save me a seat!

  1. BARCA Pier & Wine Bar: It’s as close to being on a boat as you can get! This fantastic spot puts you on the water and in the mix of wonderful foot traffic. Stare at the water and relax or make some new friends!
  2. Ada’s on the River: Take an umbrella-covered table or sit fireside and enjoy waterfront views. With indoor and outdoor seating, you’ll be able to enjoy water views from any delicious seat in the house!
  3. Hank’s Oyster Bar: This is one of the most delicious rooftops in the city! Enjoy terrific city views while feasting on a masterful menu.

Hopefully, I’ll see you at one of these hot-spots soon!
