Bethesda Row Favorite On The Way Out

City Lights of China Restaurant is closingA Bethesda Row favorite is on the way out, closing Tuesday as its lease comes to an end.

The City Lights of China Restaurant will look for a new space in Bethesda after 10 years at 4820 Bethesda Ave., according to manager Michael He.

The rent on the street of high-end chains and clothing boutiques was just too high for the restaurant to remain.

“We just want to thank the customers for being with us and we hope to serve them soon,” He said.

Blogger Robert Dyer reported Shophouse, the Chipotle-inspired Asian-style fast casual restaurant, would be taking over the space. We’re waiting to hear confirmation.
