Haven't kept up on this. Did NY actually pass the ban? If so, how does it work in the restaurants where you fill the cup yourself at a customer-accessible soda fountain? Specifically, how do they handle that the maximum cup size for, say, Coke is 32 oz. but there's no limit on the cup size for Diet Coke? — Radish

Yes [the ban has passed]. ... I have no idea how restaurants handle this in practice. I don't live in NYC and when I visit, don't go to fast food joints. — xLife

Apparently the ban has not actually gone into effect, and doesn't until March 12th.

"The ban on sodas over 16 ounces takes effect on March 12, and the New York Post reports it has some previously uncontemplated effects. For instance, ordering a 2-liter bottle of Coke, Pepsi, Sprite or whatever the family desires with a pizza delivery won’t be allowed. Even pitchers of soda at children’s birthday parties are going to be a no-no under Bloomberg’s far-reaching ban, according to the paper."
