Dragon Chinese Restaurant

-A A +A
326 2nd Ave. S.E.

The presence of a Chinese restaurant is delightfully and effectively announced by a neon sign in the outline form of a pagoda, and at the entrance by the suggestion of a temple roof terminated by dragons. All of this has been “plopped” onto the corner of a nineteenth-century brick-and-stone commercial block.
