Who is seeing Google local and does it work outside of the US?
The announcement says that from today on local information is integrated across Google.

From the new “Local” tab on the left-hand side of Google+, you can search for specific places or browse for ones that fit your mood. If you click on a restaurant, or a museum (or whatever), you’ll be taken to a local Google+ page that includes photos, Zagat scores and summaries, reviews from people you know, and other useful information like address and opening hours.

Google+ Local is also integrated across other products you already use every day. If you’re looking for a place on Search or Maps, you get the same great local information there too. You can also take it on the go with Google Maps for mobile on your Android device, and soon on iOS devices.

The Zagat reviews are well know in the US, but how many people in Europe are aware of them?

The company, which is run by Nina and Tim Zagat, has been around for 32 years and it used to be a sort of avant la lettre crowdsourced restaurant review system. Now Europe knows many similar systems, but most are restricted to one country or only a few cities.

Did local pop in your G+ or google maps and if so how does it work if you´re based in Europe? Any experience with the Zagat scores?
