L’opossum picked as one of the best

I could spend all night in the restaurant just picking my favorite creepy clown picture.

From Southern Living’s list of The South’s Best Restaurants 2015:

Chef David Shannon’s new venture L’opposum isn’t only idiosyncratic in name. For one, the restaurant is furnished with his personal art collection, which includes Star Wars collectable plates, miniature statues of David, and paintings of punk singers like Nick Cave. Oh yeah, and stuffed possums. The menu contains items with names such as A Mélange of Manikintowne Mesclun and Swashbuckling Bundt Pirate Drenched in Hot Buttered Rum. Try the Les Escargots à la Ham Biscuit i.e. snails on soft biscuits swimming in a sweet garlic beurre blanc

Anyone that has gone to L’opossum knows that all the above is true. The funky decor is matched by the funky and delicious food.
