Gail Thompson, the widow of Carl Thompson Jr., has taken charge of Thompson’s Point of View due to the unexpected death of her husband last month at the age of 51. Carl Thompson Jr. had been a fixture in the Central District community, since Thompson’s Point of View started serving up its Southern (North Louisiana) food in 1986. Sir Mix-A-Lot, for one, called Thompsons’ Point of View one of his favorite Seattle soul food eateries.
CDNews spoke with the Ms. Thompson, who told us she had no plans to change the menu. However, she may change the layout and design of the interior in coming months.
Thompson’s is open 11am – 2am daily.
