End of the line for Kapre Lounge
Kapre Lounge served the town's best fried chicken from this Welton storefront.
For decades, Kapre Lounge, at 2729 Welton Street, served the town's best fried chicken. After Wilfred O. Thomas closed his place six years ago, Stage 2 moved into the space, ostensibly serving up Kapre's old recipe -- but it just wasn't the same.
And now the joint's closed for good, according to a sign on the door. Above that is a banner devoted to the building's former landlord, "Five Points legend" Charles Cousins, who passed away earlier this year; many of his holdings in the neighborhood are now for sale.
