Kevin Reading, executive chef at Nage (1600 Rhode Island Ave., NW; 202-448-8005), is a huge fan of the King. In honor of National Elvis Week—which has been celebrated every August since Elvis Presley’s death in 1977—Reading is serving up the singer’s well-known favorite sandwich, fried peanut-butter-and-banana, all month long. His rendition includes thick slices of house-made bread filled with creamy peanut butter and sliced banana, lightly fried on each side. Some Elvis-obsessed fans make the trip to Graceland every year, but we think Reading’s tribute would make the man himself proud. He’d certainly help himself to a few of the decadent $8 sandwiches.
Offered for lunch (11:30 to 2:30) through August 31.
