    Aaron Peskin's proposed North Beach restaurant ban—which goes to debate this Thursday!—may hinge on the loose definition of ... a meal: "An upscale wine bar, for example, couldn't move into a spot vacated by an out-of-business pharmacy or clothing store. It could try to qualify as a restaurant under the legislation, but it would have to offer 'meals' instead of appetizers and get 51 percent of its revenue from food service. It would also have to serve 'dinner' between 5 and 10 p.m. And even if it met all those criteria, it would have to take the place of another bar or restaurant." [Chron, previously]
