Following the success of its original brunch shop (55, JingCheng Rd.), 3 Mins has opened this larger, 50-seat Canal District restaurant on an alley just off HuaMei Street (see Compass Map), serving American-style fare, from brunch, burgers and salads to pasta and other main entrees. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Angel Pu
