Re: what to get next
I have to say, that's a very varied list. Themes, mechanics, weight, playing time, best number of players - this is all over the map.
Given your existing collection and assuming you'd like some variety, I'd suggest looking at Ra, Ys or Dungeon Lords first (I don't know all games on the list though - like Macao, which could be a good fit for you too).
Some remarks about a few others:
Zack & Pack is 3-player minimum - you said at least 2 player, I expect you want to be able to play with just 2 as well. Same for Dixit and Identik, with the added comment that they're best as a party game, so for as many as possible.
I haven't played Vinicola yet, but it's supposed to be right up against your time limit.
I also suggest Ra but Modern Art might be better for your group, being eclectic.
You like Agricola and Le Havre, so you should definitely try Stone Age.
Also Small World is good for 4 or 5 players and is easy and short (40-80 minutes).

Stone Age will sit well I am certain. Great easy game with some real twists.
Galaxy Trucker is another really fun game that you didn't mention. Can be a riot to play with several people. Its a great laugh when the person in the lead makes a minor error in building their ship and loses half of it from a stray asteroid.
Dungeon Lords is highly recomended also, but only if your group likes
screwing each other over and get a good laugh out of failure. That game is awesome fun but can make you want to toss the table over when things turn bad for you and your helpless dungeon.

Fresko looks like your game, though San Juan and others are good too.
I respectfully disagree with everyone who suggested Dungeon Lords. Regardless of individual taste, the game is long, complicated to teach and doesn't play very well with less than 4 players. Doesn't sound like it fits the criteria very well at all.
Macao is great, but not exactly easy to teach. I also wouldn't play it with more than 3.
Based on your list I would choose:
Carson City is scaleable and has a great theme
San Juan is good from 2-4 players and is easier to teach than RFTG which I prefer
Yspahan is fun a works probably better with more than 2
Fresco seems like it could also be good but haven't played it
