For a break from snails and steak-frites, book a table at the city’s most cutting-edge restaurant. Having trained under world famous Alain Passard at his Parisian three Michelin-starred l’Arpège, the young and talented Maxime Voisin is making his own mark on the French culinary scene right here in modest Orléans. The dining room and menu are both small, yet the menu is big on flavor. Dazzle your taste buds with his daily creations like cream of sweet potato topped with smoked cecina and timut pepper, leg of lamb on a bed of kasha and spelt cooked in Margoulette beer or rack of pork grilled with sage and served with melon.
