The Michelin Guide’s Nordic picks for 2021 are in and they come bringing big news.
Maaemo shines again
Located in Oslo, Maaemo has gotten its three Michelin stars back!
The restaurant received three stars in 2016 – one of the first in the Nordic region to do so.
But, all three stars were lost in 2020 when the restaurant temporarily shut down to change premises.
The restaurant has now flourished again under chef-owner Esben Holmboe Bang.
