B2 Bistro + Bar restaurant group is excited to announce the opening of its fifth location, this one in Toms River, New Jersey, this Monday, November 23. The new spot is conveniently located directly across from the Ocean County Mall.
Open During Renovations
The restaurant formerly known as Tuscan House will undergo major renovations. Changes will include the following:
- the addition of a brand-new bar area
- glass garage doors leading out to the expansive patio
- an open kitchen with a wood-fired pizza oven
- a grill and sushi station, new exterior finishes
- the expansion of an all-new private event space
Restaurant dining will continue during the renovation period.
“We are thrilled to be able to bring a new restaurant and jobs to Ocean County in these very trying times for small businesses,” said Stephen Valentine, managing partner. “Our recent experience operating four restaurants through shutdown and then under strict safety protocols means we are ready and able to bring the same level of safety, not to mention fantastic food and service to Toms River.”
Those who have had the pleasure of dining at any of B2 Bistro + Bar’s other locations, in Point Pleasant Beach, Red Bank, North Brunswick, and West Reading, PA, will understand the buzz surrounding this latest opening—their second in Ocean County.
Based on popular bistro-style cooking in the United States, France, Italy, Spain, Greece, and other Mediterranean countries, B2’s culinary focal point is its wood-burning oven, where many dishes are prepared, in addition to their specialty pizzas. The exposed oven serves as a key spot in the restaurant.
B2’s commitment to sourcing locally is demonstrated in the seasonal menu. Patrons can expect exciting menu changes with the seasons, featuring meats, seafood, and produce sourced from the area’s finest purveyors. Like the Point Pleasant Beach location, the Toms River location will also offer the restaurant’s signature sushi menu beginning in late December.
At full capacity, the Toms River location will be able to seat 284 guests and offer an 80-guest banquet area as well as a new patio for al fresco dining.
