The food and wine opportunities for Fredericksburg keep on coming and Otto's is a fine example of honoring the German heritage of the region while pumping in some youthful, delicious and creative takes on some of the old classics.
The house the restaurant is in, is cozy and modern and the hipster waitstaff are attentive and passionate about what they're serving. It's a small space, so reservations are recommended for evening dining times. During the summer months, the porch serves as a swankier version of a beer garden with views of the newly refurbished National Museum of the Pacific War.
Otto's is even a great spot to grab a drink and an appetizer in between shopping and exploring in this charming town. Whatever you do, make sure you order the Flammkuchen. It's a flatbread specialty with crème fraiche, Cambozola, Gruyère, candied bacon, caramelized onions on top of Texas apples.
