    Section 334.10 lists the uses permitted, I would check with your building AHJ.
    For the smokes, my experience is that is done by the fire marshal, when the contractor pulls the permit, the building dept has a check list for the various requirements (fire, backflow, water, sewer) and they will indicate what is needed.

    Just because the restaurant seats over 100 people doesn't make the entire building a place of assembly.

    Many EI's will still consider anything not separated by a 1 hour or more finish from the place of assembly to still be considered part of the place of assembly though.
    I live for today, I'm just a day behind.
