Restaurants sell food. Unless it is an “amenity” that belongs to a larger thing, I assume that all restaurants are building=retail. this is especially true of fast food restaurants. 

there may be situations where a restaurant is a point inside a larger building (a tower with a restaurant on top, a hotel with a restaurant inside, an apartment complex with a small restaurant on the first floor, etc ), but a purpose-built building along a road with a parking lot is certainly retail. 

we have =office and =hotel,  a type of building=commercial, so if you suggest we make building=restaurant, that seems fine to me. But in it’s absence, building=retail is the correct value (to me).
