Maaemo is the first restaurant in Norway ever to hold three Michelin stars, the highest accolade presented to a dining destination, and now you have the chance to enjoy a private dinner at the Test Kitchen table.
If discretion is important to you then Maaemo ticks every box, with just eight tables in the main dining room. However, if you’re seeking an unforgettable night full of exclusivity then take a seat at the Test Kitchen table, where an uninterrupted view of the working chefs crafting the innovative cuisine is only yours. You also get sight of the unique Bjørvika skyline, Scandinavian minimalism at it’s finest.
Produce takes inspiration from Norweigan nature with its rugged landscape and sweeping fjords. Dining at Maaemo will see you embark on a culinary journey as you experience tastes of the southern Hvaler islands to textures of the inland Røros scenery. Think Norwegian langoustines with pine, mackerel with ramson and ice cream with brown butter caramel, using ingredients grown locally.
When it comes to the interiors, expect refined aesthetics with a contemporary colour palette and minimalistic styling seen in the lack of artwork or features. The floor to ceiling windows and sheepskin throws would fit seamlessly into the sparse landscape of the Norwegian fjord land, and the chic 20-dish tasting menu paired with complementary wines would be at home in New York.
