In celebration of Elvis Presley's birthday this Saturday (can you believe the "king" would have been 76!) chow down on some of his favorite foods, NYC-style.
The king's diet is well-known and has spawned cookbooks, memorabilia and copycats.

You'd be surprised by the number of restaurants in New York who have taken the king's killer (literally) combination and put their own spin on it. Last spring, Shake Shack debuted a peanut butter & bacon burger special and the recently closed SarahJames in Brooklyn had a burger with banana tempura and peanut butter topping.
