Hello guys,
I want to know how to find nearest restaurants in my location (using google map), and displays them in a ListBox in my windows phone 7 application, I have researched a lot but I don't find any tutorial works with C#
Any help please?

Look at this article in codeproject that will show you how to use the Google Places Api:
Event Finder - Google Places Event App[^]

If you need more references about the place APi look on the developers google site, here:[^]

Hello Valery,
Thank you for your solution, I develops a windows phone 7 application that don't accept HTML tags :(
So, can you give me more helps please?
I need a tutorial how to displays the nearby places which are for a specific type (Restaurants, Hotels...) in a ListBox without using HTML tags or Javascript.. only C#.
Thanks in advance :)

use a httpwebrequest:

HttpWebRequest webRequest = WebRequest.Create(@",1.1957362&radius=7500&types=restaurant&sensor=false&key=yourkey") as HttpWebRequest;
webRequest.Timeout = 20000;
webRequest.Method = "GET";
webRequest.BeginGetResponse(new AsyncCallback(RequestCompleted), webRequest);

and in the call back parse the response:

private static void RequestCompleted(IAsyncResult result)
HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)result.AsyncState;
HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse)request.EndGetResponse(result);
string response = string.Empty;
using (Stream stream = response.GetResponseStream())
StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(stream);
response = reader.ReadToEnd();

The response string will have something like:
"results" :
"geometry" : {
"location" : {
"lat" : 51.8664050,
"lng" : 1.2132110
"name" : "King of spices",

write a class to parse the response and load in the listbox the info you like.
