    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      Originally opened as a premium ice cream shop called Gracie's, this little spot on the corner of Xinle and Fumin re-branded itself as Al's Diner in Fall 2015. They're serving American diner classics like biscuits and gravy, patty melts, monte cristos, egg x sausage muffins, burgers, and sandwiches. There's also Korean-style double-fried chicken and Kirin beer topped with frozen beer slush. This new menu was designed by Sean Jorgenson (Maya, Liquid Laundry) and Anna Bautista (Coquille, Madera). Don't worry -- the ice cream is still there, and it's damn good, with flavors like cookie dough, mint chocolate chip, and pumpkin. You're really coming here for the patty melt and other heart-attack fare, but they do have some vegetarian and healthier options too. There's a couple tables outside for nice days, too. Breakfast is available all day.
