Maaemo’s head chef, Esben Holmboe-Bang and his team were of course immensely happy when the announcement was made in Copenhagen on February 24th.
Maaemo opened its doors in 2010 and already in 2012 they were awarded two stars. This year they achieved the third star, making it just one of two restaurants in the Nordics to receive the coveted distinction. Geranium in Copenhagen also got three stars.
As the first ever outside Oslo, restaurant Re-naa in Stavanger achieved one star.
