[Tagging] How to tag a building constructed for a gastronomic purposes?

I’d recommend tagging all retail buildings, including fast foot and
restaurants, with building=retail.
A building built for fast food can easily be converted to a sit-down,
full-service restaurant without any modifications to the building
structure. And a restaurant in a storefront building could turn into a
different type of retail when the lease is up.

How about building=retail plus retail=fast_food or =restaurant to show the
specific type of use? Or just add the amenity=fast_food tag to the building
outline if that works
