Edinburgh picks up another Michelin star

Edinburgh – and more specifically, Leith – has picked up another Michelin star with Tony Borthwick's Plumed Horse joining the list of culinary luminaries in Scotland. Scotland made a net gain of three stars in the 2009 awards, taking its total to thirteen with one two-star restaurant, Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles.

There was also success for one of the winners of The List's Newcomer Awards in 2008, with David Ramsden's central Edinburgh restaurant The Dogs picking up a Bib Gourmand, a separate Michelin award given for good food at moderate prices. Both Edinburgh winners re-gained their awards, having achieved the accolades at previous establishments: Borthwick at his original Plumed Horse near Castle Douglas, and Ramsden at Fitzhenry.
