Five restaurants from across Scotland’s east coast have been listed in the new Sunday Times Top 100 Restaurants roll of honour published yesterday (Sunday, November 8).
The Restaurant (Martin Wishart), 21212, The Kitchin and Wedgwood in Edinburgh all feature – as does The Peat Inn, just outside Cupar in Fife.
They are among eight Scottish restaurants to make the list, which also includes Applecross Inn and The Three Chimneys in the Highlands, alongside Andrew Fairlie at The Gleneagles Hotel in Auchterarder.
According to The Sunday Times, the list confirms Edinburgh, which accounts for half of Scotland’s entries, as the UK’s culinary capital outside of London.
Editor Karen Robinson said: “The Sunday Times Top 100 Restaurants combines the opinions of thousands of diners to produce a definitive list. Basing it on the ratings of everyday restaurant-goers, who are paying their own money, means it is an honest reflection of the nation’s tastes, so chefs and restaurants should be truly proud to make the list.”
The Top 100, which is compiled by The Sunday Times in association with Harden’s, is in its sixth annual edition, based on 63,000 reviews from nearly 7,000 diners.
