Google has added a new feature to Google+ where users can see the local businesses that others have reviewed. Under the "About" tab on a user's profile page, there is now a section called "local," which will show you how many reviews the user has. You can click through to see the reviews.

Google announced the feature in a Google+ update:


Profile Update: See the places your friends have reviewed!

Curious about the places your friends are eating, drinking, and hanging out? Now it's easy to find out. Click the "About" tab on any profile and you'll notice a new section for "Local" with a link to that person's reviews. The opinions of people you trust are now just a click away!

If you are following people on Google+ whose tastes you trust, this could be a good way to discover new businesses and restaurants. Here's what the page looks like when you click through:
