My wife and I will be moving to London from a small town in northern Utah - a complete food wasteland. My job will be near King's Cross and I'm trying to figure out where to live. I think we will have to keep the rent below 1400/month, so really high end neighborhoods are out.
The reason I'm posting here is because my number one concern is food and drink - access to good markets, real ale, ethnic diversity, low prices - but still a few nicer places, cheese, meats, etc. Access to entertainment, museums, clubs, theater, etc. is much less important.
Basically, if chowhounders were choosing where to live in London, with a fairly limited amount of disposable cash, what neighborhood would you choose?
