    For this demonstration, it has brought up a map of London
    .
    This is good, as using this feature works best in well-known areas with more available options. Rural or unexplored areas will have fewer results and fewer search filter options.

    The list is currently sorted by "rating." Rating is identified by the number of stars each business has been given by customers
    .
    Microsoft has collected information and uses that to rank the restaurants. Alternatively, the list of restaurants and cafes can be sorted by distance. Perhaps a closer place would be a better option.

    Just below that is the option to show only places that are currently open
    .
    Check the box to filter the results to show only restaurants that are "Open now." It is better to include this option because you will probably not want to visit a cafe or restaurant that is closed.

    "Cuisines" can also be chosen by checking the boxes next to types of cuisine to be included in the result list
    .
    For this tutorial, "Japanese" is chosen by placing a check in the box next to "Japanese." Multiple options can also be chosen as well.

    The "eat+drink" list is now sorted by distance and focuses on Japanese restaurants
    .
    The first result may not be the highest rated, but it is the closest. Even though the results aren't ranked by quality or rating, the stars will still be visible. The first result actually has no star rating. However, the second result has 5 stars. It is only 0.11 miles away, so this could be a very interesting result. It is very close and has a very good 5-star rating.
