(a) A restaurant or eating place license authorizes a restaurant or eating place to sell beer and wine for consumption only on the licensed premises.

(b) A license may be issued under this section only if the board determines that the premises to be licensed are a bona fide restaurant or eating place.

(d) The biennial fee for a restaurant or eating place license is $600.

(e) A license may be renewed under this section only if the licensee provides evidence to the board's satisfaction that gross receipts from the sale of food upon the licensed premises constitute no less than 50 percent of the gross receipts of the licensed premises for each of the two preceding calendar years.

(f) Notwithstanding the provisions of (b) of this section, upon written application and approval of the local governing body, the board may renew a restaurant or eating place license and exempt the licensee from the requirements of (b) of this section if the license was issued under the provisions of this subsection before October 1, 1996. The board may not

(1) renew a license as provided under this subsection if

(2) transfer an exempt license issued under this subsection to another person.
