The famous restaurant guide also gives one star to Bagatelle, and Statholdergaarden and Restaurant Oscarsgate still have one star each.
"Maaemo is the first Nordic restaurant to enter the guide with two stars on the first try", said Lotta Wrangler, press manager for Michelin in the Nordic countries. Two stars means the restaurant offers "exceptional cuisine, worth a detour."
When it opened at Grønland in Oslo in late 2010, Maaemo was first restaurant in Norway where all the food is made from only organic and natural ingredients.
The one star given to Bagatelle, Statholdergaarden and Restaurant Oscarsgate means that they offer "very good cuisine in their category," according to the Guide Michelin.
The guide also has a list called Bib Gourmand, which lists restaurants with "good food at a low price." The latest Oslo restaurant to make this list is Lille B, while Restaurant Eik and Oro Bar & Grill retain their places.
Oslo is the only Norwegian city with restaurants in the guide, so it is safe to say that Oslo is still the country's definite gourmet capital!
