Urbanspoon — free app for finding nearby restaurants

Following up on my discussion of the Where To? app, I wanted to mention Urbanspoon, a free app for finding nearby restaurants that appears to be quite popular. It uses GPS to find a restaurant near you. And you can filter the results according to price, type of food, and neighborhood. You can also access reviews of these establishments from newspapers, bloggers, and other diners.
