If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably asked yourself this question at some point in your life, the one nobody has the answer for: Where/what should we eat?

That’s when the idea came to ask Google Maps to list out the top restaurants/bars/anything else nearby so we’d have an easier time choosing.

Luckily, the Google Maps API has the ability to do just that with the combination of its Places API. So today, I would like to show you how you can do the same.

The very first step in this endeavor is to receive an API key.

Google Maps Platform JavaScript API and TypeScript

In July, we started rolling out TypeScript samples in the Maps JavaScript API documentation to better support modern web developers. TypeScript is growing in popularity and we hope to make the experience the best it can be for Google Maps Platform developers.
