South Florida's Historical Foodie Institutions

Recently I've been wondering where are the foodie institutions in South Florida - which are institutions because they've been around forever and can claim themselves as being the oldest running operation in South Florida. Honestly I'm a little clueless about foodie history in South Florida so I'm putting together what I already do know.

Tobacco Road of Miami is said to be the oldest operating bar and restaurant in Miami, since 1912.

Joe's Stone Crabs of Miami Beach has been operating since 1913.

S&S Diner of Miami, Miami's oldest diner since 1938.

Laurenzo's of North Miami Beach, South Florida's oldest Italian market? Since 1951.

Frankie's Pizza of Miami recently celebrated their 55th year of operation and claims to be the oldest pizzeria in Miami, since 1955.

Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor of Dania Beach, open since 1956.

I'm sure we have more institutions than these - Italian, French, Cuban, Colombian, an ice cream parlor, etc. The list can be endless but be of historical importance. :)
