Starting in April, friends old and new will gather at the sixth location of B2 Bistro + Bar, on beautiful Barnegat Bay, in Bayville. They’ll enjoy the chef-inspired seasonal, farm-to-table dishes that the group is now known for in this new spot.
The new B2, its third location in Ocean County, replaces Martell’s Water’s Edge. The restaurant has a rustic yet sophisticated vibe, and offers access to 30+ moorings for all boat sizes, with a full team of licensed captains and pontoon boats, and a heated saltwater pool alongside cabanas.
So Much to Offer
“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 Stephen Valentine, managing partner. “Now we get to offer what makes our restaurants so special, plus so much more in a beautiful spot where the sunsets are spectacular. In addition to the exciting Atlantic coastal cuisine, wood-fired 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 lineup of entertainment, seven days a week.”
Open mic night with the restaurant’s own house band will happen Wednesday nights, and B2 will feature a country night on Thursdays with live country music, a DJ, line-dancing instructors, live broadcasts by Country Thunder 106, and weekly giveaways—including a trip to Nashville. If you want to join the fun, feel free to bring an instrument and jam—or sing—with the band.
On any given day, some of the best East Coast cover bands, like Drop Dead Sexy, Don’t Call Me Francis, and Shorty Long will get the party started. And on the weekends, B2 will feature post-Tices Shoal parties.
The Dining Experience
The menu is defined by B2’s award-winning burgers, steaks, fresh seafood, wood-fired pizzas, sushi, and more of the American- and Mediterranean-bistro-style fare the group has come to be known for.
Diners will enjoy two large outdoor decks with open-air dining and multiple full-service bars. Alternatively, they can relax at the tiki bar with one of B2’s signature seasonal cocktails. Three gorgeous banquet rooms of varying sizes and spectacular views will soon be home to weddings and other special events as well.
Check It Out
B2 Bistro will open on weekends beginning April 8, and then shift to seven days a week on May 5. Stop by the restaurant 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.
When you visit the quaint town of Bayville, stop by the beautiful Double Trouble State Park, the site of an Ocean Spray cranberry bog. You’ll find 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’re lucky!
