This afternoon, Crain’s Chicago announced a first-of-its-kind partnership with the rapidly growing Foursquare location service, to provide “inside tips” on local restaurants when users check in to a reviewed restaurant, or a nearby establishment. For example, when a user checks in to the restaurant “Trader Vics”, they’ll receive a tip which states “The unusual wok-fried lamb ($25) caught our eye, sliced meat with shiso leaf, watercress, apricots and pine nuts.”

While this is the first type of partnership we’ve seen for Foursquare, we could imagine numerous other implementations of tips powered by larger review companies.
