We invite you to be our guest at B2 Bistro + Bar Red Bank and immerse yourself in the rustic yet sophisticated vibe. Reclaimed wood, industrial accents, and an open kitchen make your visit as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate. Our excellent location is right near the bustle and action of Red Bank with the Two River Theatre and Count Basie Center for the Performing Arts within a 5-10 minute walk from our front door.
Based on the "garden to table" concept, our Executive Chef, Cesare "Chez" De Chellis, and his talented team transform the freshest locally-sourced ingredients into delectable culinary creations with their own innovative and creative twist. Based on the popular bistro-style cooking in the United States, France, Italy, Spain, Greece, and other Mediterranean countries, B2's culinary focal point is our wood burning oven where many of our dishes are prepared (in particular, our specialty pizzas). Our oven serves as a key social-gathering point in the restaurant where guests can enjoy the culinary theater and the palate-pleasing creations courtesy of our talented culinary artisans.
Cocktails anyone? You’ve come to the right place! Take a seat at our stylish bar and sample from our eclectic and well-priced wine list, a continuously rotating selection of the best 16 draft beers you'll find anywhere, and a raft of expertly crafted cocktails. We specialize in barrel aged spirits and the freshest seasonal fruit in our drinks. Whether you're joining us for a quick bite at our bar or sitting down to a five-course meal in our splendid dining room, we’ll provide you with a memorable culinary experience, a stylish and relaxing atmosphere, and unsurpassed hospitality. We look forward to seeing you soon!
A New Jersey native, Chez's passion for food was instilled at a very young age by his Italian father who taught him to appreciate the love and the art of food and how it can bring people together in all manner of socialization, events, and celebrations.
Chez graduated at the top of his class from the Culinary Institute of America and subsequently worked his way to the top ranks of kitchens along the east coast where he cultivated his skills in a wide variety of cuisines and kitchens. Working with Executive Chef Don Pintabona (formerly of Tribeca Grill) and Chef Jimmy Canora (formerly of Delmonico’s) at Valentino’s on the Green, Chez learned the creative, managerial, and technical skills that he brings to B2 Bistro + Bar today as Executive Chef and Partner.
