Located in Bjørvika (the newly developing part of Oslo close to the Opera House), Maaemo is considered one of the most exciting additions to the city's culinary landscape. The restaurant's name translates to Mother Nature, and the focus is on Modern Nordic cuisine made from almost 100 percent wild and organic ingredients. The chefs don't have to head far out of Oslo's city center to pick the berries, herbs, and wild mushrooms featured in their dishes (often their foraging sessions happen right before the service). In season, you'll find wild game such as reindeer, grouse, deer, and duck on the menu, and there's always fresh fish from Norway's bountiful waters (monkfish with parsnip and cold-water seaweed is a favorite). There is also a lot of drying and pickling done in the summer months to make sure winter's menus are well served. Just know that a meal here is a serious time and financial investment—it's a nine-course affair that actually comes closer to 16 servings once the chef's extras are added in. Indulgent, yes. And for a special occasion, very worthy of a when-in-Oslo splurge.—Terry Ward

Open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 6 pm.
