[Tagging] craft= Proposal

How would you tag a restaurant that sells food for take-away, but doesn't have any tables for customers to sit and eat on the premises?  For example, there is a chain of barbecue restaurants here in Nashville, TN, USA, that generally does carry-out business only.  I only know of one location that has tables and seating for customers, and it is a converted building that used to be one of a different restaurant chain.

I think we need both: shop=bakery and craft=bakery. The latter is
producing, the first only selling (or finishing industrial stuff for
some minutes in the oven). A traditional bakery (which also sells)
would get both tags, the nowaday mostly occuring bakery chain would be
only shop=bakery.

A restaurant is IMHO not a craft, while cooking is. The main purpose
of a restaurant is not cooking though, but sitting and eating.
