2. Victory Restaurant & Lounge
Victory Restaurant & Lounge was born out of an idea to create a place where people could enjoy 5-Star meals in a relaxing, welcoming environment. Chef Tobias knew from the beginning of his culinary career that he wanted to someday open up a restaurant to share his culinary gifts with others. That dream came true with Victory Restaurant & Lounge in Miami when he joined forces with Ricardo Young. Ricardo, a decorated businessman, had visions of opening a hookah lounge while Tobias had aspirations of opening an elite restaurant. Together they knew they could incorporate a very unconventional Washingtonian vibe that Miami had yet to be introduced to. The mixture of a dynamic ambiance, unmatched vibe, impeccable food and hookah came to life with Victory Restaurant & Lounge.

3.Tom Jenkins B-B-Q
Tom Jenkins’ BBQ Restaurant and Sauce was founded by two friends, Harry Harrell and Gary Torrence.
Both men’s passion for cooking led to the creation of Tom Jenkins BBQ Sauce. They knew they had a hit when family members and friends raved about its great taste and always requested that they bring it to the gatherings.
In 1990, Tom Jenkins BBQ Sauce was introduced to the public via a roadside food trailer. The weekend trailer operation lasted seven years which resulted in them building a loyal customer base. A building across the street from their trailer became available, and in 1996, Harry and Gary opened Tom Jenkins BBQ Restaurant.
