Walking down E street last week we caught the above sidewalk advertisement for the daily lunch special at Zola Wine & Kitchen. We applaud Zola for this choice, peanut butter sandwiches are a rarity at most eateries, no matter how they’re made, but one with both bacon and bananas? Outside of Graceland that’s almost unheard of. Now it’s true that Potbellies has a PB&J on their menu (or used to anyway, we didn’t see it on their online menu), and Busboys & Poets offers a peanut butter and banana panini (panini?? George Washington Carver is no doubt rolling over in his grave), but the addition of bacon propels this Zola offering to a whole new level.
Now we’ve always preferred the more soulful (fat) Elvis, so maybe that’s why our only regret is that they didn’t go all the way and deep-fry this beast. Still, we can’t help falling in love with this sandwich.
