No hotels? There are 4 in approximately 2 km radius. And I'm pretty sure the 2 new ones by the hotel don't have restaurants. These would be the closest restaurants to the airport.

It is extremely hard for Food based businesses to survive based on one time of the day being busy ( Ie Lunch ). They need a constant flow of customers all day long, Breakfast, lunch , dinner and late night.
Although there are plenty of business class people working in this immediate area, 99% of them are gone by 5 oclock everyday -- and then there is nothing left in the area to draw in the nighttime customers . This is where the theatre would have helped.

As far as the Hotels go, they need to be on your doorstep, to see an immediate impact for the Restaurant industry.

Just my views, I guess time ( as always ) will tell.
