Sure, Google may have acquired Zagat and used the company's renowned ratings engine to start powering its data on everything from electronics stores to car washes. However, the review site got its start in restaurants way back in the day, and even after the purchase, continues to provide helpful information on every aspect of your food consumption outings. So, why not give the service its own app? Well, that's just what everyone's favorite search giant did!

Zagat is predictably gorgeous. With Google Maps built in, it's convenient to find a restaurant near you, check its ratings, and even get photos of the place where available. For those unfamiliar with the system, each establishment gets separate scores for food, décor, and service, with an overall ranking for the place as a whole. There is even a scale for measuring how expensive the meals get.

All in all, it's a pretty nice looking app. It may be redundant info if you already use Local for finding places nearby, but if you'd like to get rid of the clutter when searching for restaurants, it'd be hard to find a prettier app than Zagat.
