Hi, all -- I'm going to be spending 2 weeks in Berlin in April for the first time. I've already seen some recommendations here that look excellent, but I'm wondering if anyone could suggest a neighborhood (or neighborhoods) with interesting, edgy, not terribly expensive restaurants and are more or less centrally located. (If someone has already done this, I apologize -- I missed it, and I'd be grateful if someone could refer me to it.)
Also, does anyone have advice for food to buy in Berlin as presents that aren't easily available, or not available at all, in the US?
Thanks! And thanks also to all of you who have already put up some very useful posts.
