The game of musical chairs that’s the restaurant scene at CityPlace will be getting authentically musical with the coming debut of Lafayette’s Music Room, a West Palm outlet of the Memphis original that in the 1970s was a go-to stop for musicians like Leon Russell, J.J. Cale and Billy Joel.
Lafayette’s will slide into the old B.B. King’s space next to the Muvico theater and will feature live music—from solo pianists to local and national bands, blues to jazz to rock ‘n’ roll—seven nights a week.
Also on the menu is “Southern food with an attitude,” which on your plate translates into dishes like shrimp & andouille and Cajun crawfish pizzas, chicken ‘n’ waffles and jambalaya pasta, fried shrimp po’ boys and, of course, a thick, juicy burger. B.B. King’s had a rough go of it in CityPlace, but a place that serves good food with real music—not watered-down semi-pop dreck. . . Well, you just gotta love that.
