Blue Ridge Grill in Ashburn Village didn’t waste any time getting going on their new patio. Crews started digging up the landscaping in front of the store today in order to install a new fenced, outdoor dining area.

It was just yesterday that The Burn told you about the scramble going on at area restaurants to create more outdoor seating options due to the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 rules in Virginia, as well as a preference for open air dining expressed by some customers due to the health concerns.

We had heard that Blue Ridge Grill — which has a lovely patio at their Brambleton Town Center location — was going to add a patio at the Ashburn Village store — and sure enough, they started the work today. They hope to have it done and ready for guests in a matter of weeks.
