Foursquare said today that it will begin testing what it calls a new "sixth sense" feature that offers location-based recommendations that guide users toward things "you didn't even know you were looking for."

People who activate the new feature will receive proactive recommendations about menu items at a restaurant they're sitting at or get a list of local hotels and bars when they stroll into a new part of town or land in a new city.

For example, one update might read: "At Kanoyama Sushi?

People talk about: 'superman roll,' 'tuna ribs and 'surprisingly cheap omakase.'"

The spontaneous discovery will be a fun experience for Foursquare users and a benefit to local businesses.

The benefit is relatively clear: a new way to have people discover your business who might not have otherwise.
