Good Peking Duck in DC?

Is City Lights the way to go? I saw the thread about Baltimore and it got me thinkin'...
I often see ducks hanging up in the windows of the shops in Chinatown, but I'll admit, I get timid.
Mei-Wah? Anyone know??
The best in the area is at Peking Gourmet in the Culmore Shopping Center between Bailey's Crossroads and Seven Corners(Rt. 7 and Carlin Springs Rd.).
Don't be mislead by these ducks hanging up in the windows at these chinese restaurants. They are cantonese roast ducks, not peking ducks. Peking ducks take a tremendous amount of preparation time and effort. The links below give two options in NoVA owned by the same family. The picture is hilarious and the description informative...definitely worth trying.
I've had the Peking duck at Peking Gourmet across from Lucky 3, and it was pretty good, although overhyped, especially with all the pictures in the dining area of famous faces who've stopped by. The Bushes love this joint.
