What was once old is new again. The building that held the Firestone car service station on Miami Beach since 1939 , and that closed earlier this year, is set to become a new restaurant and retail development complete with a diner from Menin Hospitality called Al’s Diner, according to the Real Deal.

 

The 24-hour-diner is set to debut sometime early next year at 1569 Alton Road. But a sense of nostalgia will stay intact, with the Firestone roof sign staying put and the “auto pull-up areas will be converted into outdoor café seating.” There will even be a take-out window on the 16th Street side serving food from the diner.
