the last of the Mohicans

The final remaining or surviving person or thing of a particular group, kind, or race. Taken from the title of the 1826 novel by James Fenimore Cooper, The Last of the Mohicans. That place is the last of the Mohicans of locally owned restaurants in this area, as every place else has been taken over by global chains. But in terms of true punk bands from the '70s, they may really be the last of the Mohicans.
