BUFFALO BACKLASH! Cuomo in Hot-Water After Saying Chicken Wings ‘Not Substantial’ Enough to Open Bars
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo faced a social media backlash Friday after saying ‘Chicken Wings’ are not considered “substantive food” by the government to allow bars to serve alcohol.
In the state of New York, bars must serve “substantive food products” to be able to serve drinks to patrons.
“To be a bar, you have to have food available. Soups, sandwiches, etc. More than chicken wings, you have to have some substantive food. The lowest level of substantive food is sandwiches,” said Cuomo.
NEW: Bars and restaurants in New York City will only be allowed to serve alcohol to people who also order food, @NYGovCuomo says.
Goal is to ensure actual outdoor dining and no outdoor drinking/idling.

“Earlier today, Governor Cuomo said chicken wings are not substantial food for bars to be allowed to sell alcohol. He added that sandwiches were the ‘lowest level’ of substantive food,” posted a local reporter from Buffalo, NY.
