The onslaught of new openings in downtown Jersey City continues. Alice Troletto and Mattias Gustafsson, the husband-and-wife team behind French bistro Madame Claude Cafe and Madame Claude Wine, appear to be nearing completion of Madame Claude Bis — their new venture located by the White Eagle Hall performance space at
337-339 Newark Avenue 390 Fourth Street.
Per a previous article by the Hudson Reporter, the new Madame Claude Bis will be much larger than the current Madame Claude Cafe with enough space to accommodate more than 80 guests. Unlike the BYOB cafe, Madame Claude Bis will have a dedicated bar and wine cellar. (The couple recently had a tasting of Madame Claude Bis’ cocktail menu at their wine shop).
