able for sale to its customers for  consumption  on  the  premises.  The

the regulations of the local department of health.] Nothing contained in
this subdivision, however, shall be construed to require that  any  food
be  sold or purchased with any liquor, nor shall any rule, regulation or
standard be promulgated or enforced requiring that the sale of  food  be
substantial  or  that  the  receipts of the business other than from the
sale of liquor equal any set percentage of  total  receipts  from  sales
made therein.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
