It’s Bay Ridge’s edgiest nightclub!

Cops say a thug stabbed a bouncer in the buttocks inside Nouveau Restaurant on Third Avenue at 3:31 am on Feb. 3 — just over a month after a mafia-linked wiseguy knifed another patron at the glossy hangout between 82nd and 83rd streets.

The victim told cops that he was trying to separate brawling patrons when a perp in a hooded sweatshirt came up behind him and jabbed him in the backside with a blade. Video cameras outside showed the cheeky villain fleeing on Third Avenue in the direction of 82nd Street.

The incident followed the Dec. 23 stabbing of Nunzio Fusco, which authorities alleged was the work of Battista “Benny” Geritano, an associate of the Gambino crime family. Both knifings occurred during a weekly dance promotion called “The Big Show.”

Nouveau occupies the same address as problem-plagued Level Cafe and Ibiza, both now defunct. The club’s management failed to return repeated calls for comment.
