              “Section 3.  Notwithstanding sections 15 and 17 of chapter 138 of the General Laws, the licensing authority of the town of Wenham may grant 1 license for the sale of all alcoholic beverages to be drunk on the premises under section 12 of said chapter 138 to restaurants having a seating capacity of less than 100 seats, provided that (a) the sale and consumption of such alcoholic beverages is incidental to the service of a meal; (b) any restaurant holding such license does not contain a lounge or bar; and (c) the holder of any such license complies with such other requirements and conditions as the local licensing authority shall deem appropriate.  The license shall be subject to all of said chapter 138, except said section 17.  Once issued, a license granted under this section shall not be transferred to any other location and no license shall be re-issued to the same location within 6 months from the date the prior license terminated unless the applicant files a letter in writing from the department of revenue with the local licensing authority indicating the prior licensee’s good standing with said department.”
