Place is unusually unusual (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

special

Here is my best explanation:

'unusual' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'place is unusually' is the subsidiary indication.

'unusually' indicates an anagram.

'place'+'is'='placeis'

'placeis' with letters rearranged gives 'special'.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for special that I've seen before include "Exceptional in intensity or quality", "Unusual, superior", "Exceptional, distinctive", "Individual", "Important; particular", "Peculiar", "Distinctive, particular", "Rare, valuable", "Designed for a purpose" and "Dish not on the normal menu".)
