Starting this April, friends both old and new of the B2 Bistro + Bar restaurant group will be able to enjoy the same chef-inspired seasonal, farm-to-table food that they are known for with the opening of their sixth location, this time on the beautiful Barnegat Bay in Bayville.
The new B2, its third location in Ocean County, is replacing what was Martell’s Waters Edge, where guests will now be treated to a rustic yet sophisticated vibe, access to 30+ moorings for all sized boats with a full team of licensed captains and pontoon boats and a heated saltwater pool alongside cabanas.
“Now we get to offer what makes our restaurants so special plus so much more in a beautiful spot where the sunsets are spectacular. We’re so excited to open our doors during a time when people really need comfort, fun and a place to reconnect with friends and family,” said Managing Partner, Stephen Valentine. “In addition to the exciting Atlantic coastal cuisine, wood-burning pizza, sushi, more than 16 craft beers on tap, eclectic wine list and expertly crafted cocktails created by our mixologists, we’ll liven things up with a great line-up of entertainment seven days a week.”
B2 will feature a country night on Thursdays with live country music, a DJ, line dance instructors, live broadcasts by Country Thunder 106 and weekly giveaways including a trip to Nashville. Open mic night with their very own house band will be on Wednesday nights when guests are invited to bring an instrument and/or voice and jam with the band. On the weekends and throughout the week, some of the best East Coast cover bands like Drop Dead Sexy, Don’t Call Me Francis and Shorty Long will be there to get the party started. Also on the weekends, B2 will feature post “Tices Shoal” parties.
From the kitchen, guests will enjoy B2’s award-winning burgers, steaks, fresh seafood, wood-burning pizzas, sushi and more of the American and Mediterranean bistro-style fare that all B2 Bistros are known for.
Diners will enjoy two large outside decks with open-air dining and multiple full-service bars or relax at the tiki bar with one of B2’s signature seasonal cocktails. There are also three gorgeous banquet rooms of varying sizes and spectacular views for weddings and other special events.
B2 Bistro will open on weekends beginning April 8 and then shift to seven days a week on May 5. It is located at 125 Bayview Avenue or due east of buoy 37 for those who will be coming by boat. B2’s other locations are in Toms River, Point Pleasant Beach, Red Bank, North Brunswick and West Reading, PA.
While visiting the quaint town of Bayville, consider stopping by the beautiful Double Trouble State Park, the site of an Ocean Spray cranberry bog and plenty of spots to hike, bike, canoe, swim, take photos or just relax. You might even catch a glimpse of the Jersey Devil, if you dare!
