Lucky Camden Town residents will have the choice of two eateries specialising in sushi after the Wasabi chain announced plans to move into a unit on the High Street vacated by EAT.

Wasabi will join Itsu - another sushi retailer - meeting the demand for the low fat, omega rich Japanese staple.

The opening of Wasabi is indicative of Camden Town's allure to retailers, with big brands, fine dining and more artisan producers sitting cheek-by-jowl on the NW1 food scene.

A booming dining scene should please more than just residents' palates. Recent research indicates that living close to a good restaurant can increase the value of a property by up to 20%.

As well as more causal dining options, including Itsu and Wasabi, Camden has an exciting restaurant lineup that involves, among many, Gilgamesh, Chin Chin Laboratorists, Hache, Bintang, Michael Nadra, Odette's and the York & Albany. It's a mouthwatering mix of Michelin-starred venues, experimental cooking and casual dining.
