Restaurant Andrew Fairlie makes it into World’s Top 100 Restaurants

Restaurant Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles Hotel is the only Scottish restaurant to make it into the Top 100 Restaurant of the World list, published by Elite Traveler and sponsored by Champagne Laurent-Perrier.
The restaurant was described in the publication as “Sumptuously lit with rich dark paneling and floorlength silk drapes, the restaurant opened to immediate critical acclaim. One of only eight Relais & Châteaux Grand Chefs in the UK, Andrew Fairlie is an A-lister of the gourmet world. His focus on quality, locally sourced materials means staff members are often found foraging in the hotel grounds. A chef of exquisite skill, he masterfully turns the best of Scottish produce – from wild salmon to Aberdeen Angus Beef – into legendary dishes.”
Coming in at number one was Chicago’s Alinea, the city’s only three-star Michelin restaurant, which offers an 18-course tasting menu. Heston Blumenthal’s UK restaurants Fat Duck and Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, at the Mandarin Oriental hotel took 3rd and 25th position respectively.
