In theory, it makes sense for a vaunted live-music venue like B.B. King’s to have an in-house restaurant. Lucille’s has both a pleasantly spacious dining room (separate from the main performance space, and filled with polished wood and comfy booths) and an agreeable-sounding menu of Southern-style comfort food (brisket, pulled pork sandwiches, “pit-roasted” chicken). But the food disappoints. Though the portions of fried catfish fingers and a barbecued chicken sandwich are massive, the fish fingers are lukewarm and slightly soggy, and the sauce on the sandwich is heat-free and sparingly applied. A side order of “spicy” red-pepper-and cabbage coleslaw is likewise gargantuan—it comes in what looks like a small tureen—and similarly tepid. It’s wiser to come for drinks and watch one of the top-notch local blues acts that play for free every night.
