NY Alcoh Bev Ctrl L § 55 (2012) What's This?
    § 55. License  to sell beer at retail for consumption on the premises.
  1.  Any person may make an application to the appropriate  board  for  a
  license  to  sell  beer at retail to be consumed upon the premises. Such
  application shall be in writing and  verified  and  shall  contain  such
  information  as  the  liquor  authority  shall require. Such application
  shall be accompanied by a check or draft for the amount required by this
  article  for  such  license.  All  of  the   provisions   contained   in
  subdivisions  two  and three of the preceding section shall apply to the
  procedure relative to an application for a license under this section.
    2. Such a license shall contain a description of the licensed premises
  and in form and in substance shall be a license to  the  person  therein
  specifically   designated   to   sell   beer  in  the  premises  therein
  specifically licensed, at retail, to be  consumed  upon  such  premises.
  Such  license shall also include the privilege of selling beer at retail
  to be consumed off the premises.
    3. No such license shall be issued, however, to  any  person  for  any
  premises  other  than  premises  for which a license may be issued under
  section sixty-four or  sixty-four-a  of  this  chapter  or  a  hotel  or
  premises which are kept, used, maintained, advertised or held out to the
  public  to  be a place where food is prepared and served for consumption
  on the premises in such quantities as to satisfy  the  liquor  authority
  that the sale of beer intended is incidental to and not the prime source
  of revenue from the operation of such premises. The foregoing provisions
  of  this  subdivision shall not apply to any premises located at, in, or
  on the area leased by the city of New York to New York World's Fair 1964
  Corporation  pursuant  to  the  provisions  of  chapter   four   hundred
  twenty-eight  of  the  laws  of  nineteen hundred sixty, as amended by a
  chapter of the laws of nineteen hundred sixty-one, during  the  term  or
  duration  of  such  lease.  Such  license may also include such suitable
  space outside of the licensed  premises  and  adjoining  it  as  may  be
  approved by the liquor authority.
