THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED City Lights of China Restaurant Restaurant Review

: You could probably predict the range of dishes offered at this Dupont Circle City Lights eatery---from Peking duck to lamb with scallions (a Northern Chinese dish). But you probably wouldn't guess that the kitchen offers a select number of lite dishes---no batter and no deep-frying---that are either sautéed or steamed to trim calories. City Lights has a neighborhood ambience, and it retains its reputation for serving good Chinese fare at modest prices.
