The newest entry in the Suwanee restaurant scene moved closer to its debut Tuesday. The Suwanee City Council approved the alcoholic beverage license for Friends Sports Grill at the February council meeting.
Ray Stanjevich, the owner/operator of the eatery, was at City Hall for the approval. He is planning on a March opening, although it might not be in time for St. Patrick's Day. He still has some other regulatory hurdles to clear before business can begin.
Stanjevich, who also runs the Friends Sports Grill in Dacula, said he is considering getting a booth at the Suwanee Beerfest, which is set for March 16 at Town Center Park.

Friends will be located at 3890 Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road, near Town Center. It will be in the suite that has housed Corralejo and Indigo Joe's.
And Stanjevich, an experienced owner-operator, is aware of the competitive nature of the restaurant business, which has claimed several Suwanee eateries in the past few months.
"If the food is not right, people are not going to come back."
