No new Michelin stars in Norway

Norway’s top restaurants held on to their Michelin stars in the new Guide Michelin released on Tuesday, but no new restaurants won any. Norwegian chef Terje Ness, however, had a bit more to brag about.

All told, Norway now has five restaurants with a Michelin star: Haga in Bærum, and Oscarsgate, Statholdergaarden, Le Canard and Spisestedet Feinschmecker, all in Oslo. A sixth restaurant which long had held Michelin honors, Bagatelle, closed in December after disagreements between the owner that had bankrolled it for years and his high-profile chef.

In addition to the restaurants with stars, Guide Michelin awarded its special mention called BibGourmand to Restaurant Eik in Oslo.

Now Michelin has also bestowed a BibGourmand distinction on Oro Bar & Grill in Oslo, which is run by chef Terje Ness. Ness also is behind restaurant Haga, which borders a golf course in Bærum, so he now can boast two levels of Michelin distinction.
