This question already has an answer here:

I am using Ubuntu 13.10. After upgrading and fixing some things the one thing I cannot fix is that the start menu lists Shutdown and Restart and both these buttons just open a menu with shutdown and restart as options. Previously on 13.04 only shutdown was present and it opened the same menu.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

It's part of the OS. There's nothing more to it. You are asked to choose between restarting or shutting down once again. However, I think there is an answer around here.
