When did Friday's on 604 5th Ave open?

Odd question, but I'm kinda curious as to how old this location is? Since it has/had (right now there is a mock up of the old pre-fire look) the same color scheme as the orginal on the UES, I'm assuming this was a pre-chain franchising second (or so on) location (akin to a Brother Jimmy's or various taverns owned by same owner(s)?

I wonder how many pre franchise Friday's were operated, and if any are still around (besides the one I'm asking about)? Ditto with a lot of other suburbian chains that take their cues from the Fridays, Chili's and Applebees of the world.
