Updated August 16, 2017 - 10:45 am

For better or worse, Elvis Presley, who died 40 years ago today, will always be known for his fave peanut-butter-and-banana sandwiches — sometimes with bacon — but he was far from alone in his tastes; even former New York mayor and noted nutrition nag Michael Bloomberg has said he’d choose a PBB&B sandwich as his last meal.

In the finest Las Vegas tradition, a number of local restaurants offer nods to The King with food and beverages showcasing those flavors. Here are some:

Sweet Elvis, Crush, MGM Grand. This dessert flatbread is spread with peanut butter, topped with bananas and bacon and drizzled with vanilla anglaise, $12.
