You may not be able to go out and enjoy Michelin-starred food right now, but some restaurants will bring their delights to the comforts of your home.
The 2021 Michelin Guide is now out – the most eagerly awaited publication by top restaurants every year.
In Monday’s big reveal, 10 establishments in Scotland either earned or held on to the coveted stars handed out by the most respected restaurant guide in the world.
When it comes to fine dining, recognition in the form of a Michelin star is the most sought after and it can take many years to be awarded one.
Along with innovation, restaurants must display incredible consistency to be given the coveted award.
But once you receive a star, or two, or sometimes three, that doesn’t set you up for life and each chef has to work equally as hard to maintain their status annually.
Monday’s ceremony was held virtually, and was hosted by Davina McCall. She revealed who the newcomers in the Michelin Guide 2021 were, with the accompanying new app launched shortly after the ceremony affirming those who had maintained their “star standards”.
However, as well as awarding stars to eateries, the Michelin Guide also recommends a number of top restaurants, many of which are in our area.
Of course, as we are currently in a nationwide lockdown you cannot get out to visit these fantastic venues, but many are offering delivery and takeaway services for you to enjoy their amazing cuisine at home.
However, you don’t need to worry about finding them as we have done the hard work and listed them all below…
