If Layar doesn't suit your needs, check out an Android app by ZAGAT and lastminute.com called nru - spoken as near you. It uses GPS, an accelerometer, and a compass to give you 360 degrees of restaurant ratings and bar information. Remember the cool Google Maps demo that showcased the G1's compass capabilities in Street View mode? I guess this kind of stuff was bound to happen. Awesome.
