Ruta: A main reason Murshed likes Cleveland Park

Komi manager and server Basheer Murshed, a long-time D.C. resident, bravely offered his top five foodie neighborhoods to the Urban Turf real estate Web site. There are no real surprises on Murshed’s list, but perhaps a few omissions that say something about the fine-dining leanings of our city.

Murshed likes the offerings found in Bethesda, Arlington, Cleveland Park/Cathedral Heights, U Street, and, of course, Penn Quarter. You can’t argue too much with any of those ‘hoods, all of which have eateries worth backing and promoting. But what about the neighborhoods or areas that don’t cater to fine dining but still have some of the best eats around?

Where’s the love for Wheaton or Seven Corners or even Rockville with its stretch of amazing Chinese restaurants?

What say you? What are your top five neighborhoods for eating?
