Matzo Brei Madness — All Year Round!

Is the world ready for year-round, tarted-up matzo brei?

MatzahBrei, which started as a Bushwick pop-up, will dish out its fancy vegetarian spins on the Passover staple all winter at Bryant Park in Manhattan.

If “exotic” to you means onions in your brei, brace yourself for the Monica — mushrooms, spinach, gruyere and dijon mustard — and the Xavier, with avocado, four-cheese blend and, um… peach-mango salsa.
