While Michelin has included some restaurants in Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden in other guides, its recommendation for restaurants in Nordic cities, specifically, are brand new. There are several two-star restaurants — in Denmark, Noma, a|o|c, and Geranium; Norway’s Maaemo; and Sweden’s Frantzén, Mathias Dahlgren-Matsalen, and Oaxen Krog — but no restaurant retained three-star status. For a region that’s widely regarded as the most innovative and exciting food region in the world right now, it’s quite surprising.
