Bistro chain to open Jersey Shore bayside restaurant this summer

B2 Bistro + Bar will open a location on the Jersey Shore just in time for summer.

The bistro chain replaces Martell’s Water Edge at 125 Bayview Ave., on Barnegat Bay in Bayville.

The B2 will open on April 8 but only on weekends. The restaurant will fully open on May 5 and will operate seven days a week.

“Now we can deliver what makes our restaurants so special, and so much more, in a beautiful location where the sunsets are spectacular,” Managing Partner Stephen Valentine said in a press release. “We are thrilled to open our doors at a time when people really need comfort, fun and a place to reconnect with friends and family.”

This will be the company’s third location in Ocean County and fifth in New Jersey. The others are at Point Pleasant Beach, Toms River, North Brunswick and Red Bank.

B2 serves American and Mediterranean bistro-style dishes, including burgers, steaks, fresh seafood, pizza, and sushi.

The new restaurant will feature two large terraces for alfresco dining, multiple full-service bars, a tiki bar, three banquet halls, a heated saltwater pool, and 30 moorings along the bay for mooring boats. .

“We’re going to liven things up with a great lineup of entertainment seven days a week,” Valentine said.

B2 Bistro only has one location outside of New Jersey, in West Reading, PA.
