The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list was revealed at a ceremony in New York City on Monday evening.
Maaemo, one of just two restaurants in the Nordics to receive three Michelin stars, missed out on inclusion in the top 50 but wasn’t too far behind at number 61.
The Oslo restaurant’s head chef, Esben Holmboe-Bang, could perhaps find solace in the fact that three eateries from his native Denmark cracked the top 50, with Copenhagen restaurants Noma (5th), Geranium (28th) and Ralæ (40th) all honoured at Monday’s ceremony.
Sweden had two entries in the top 100, with Fäviken Magasinet in Jäpren claiming 41st place and Daniel Berlin in Skåne-Tranås ranked at 93rd.
The title of best in the world was given to Osteria Francescana from Modena, Italy, which leapfrogged last year’s victor El Celler de Can Roca from Catalonia, Spain into top spot.
The World’s 50 Best Restaurants List is compiled by a group of nearly one thousand leading figures in the international restaurant industry.
