Blake (or Chef) began his culinary interest while serving in the USMC, and completed his education at Johnson & Wales University in Virginia Beach. Aby (or wife of the chef), arrived to Fredericksburg for the University of Mary Washington, where she received her BS in Business Administration. Working side by side for over 20 years, Blake’s creativity coupled with Aby’s logical business side has been a great recipe for their restaurant careers.
Vivify, meaning to us ‘lively & bright’, was inspired by our young children. We are passionate about our product choices and wanted a casual environment where our family would be happy eating, and we would feel good about the quality we were providing to them. We will not substitute on quality- locally baked bread, grass fed beef, homemade sauces, farm fresh produce (whenever possible), homemade desserts and new creations all the time. We are more then just a burger joint, offering vegetarian and gluten free options as well. At the time of conception- we were the first to have a rooftop deck in Fredericksburg, and were one of the first/only to have our style of order window service. We are an original ‘fast casual’ dining establishment in downtown Fredericksburg.
