Until today local searches on Google Maps only plotted the first page of business results, now Google Maps plots hundreds more of the results as small circles. The top ten results still appear in the left-hand side panel and as markers on the map. However you can now also click on the other circles if you wish to search outside the top ten.
The screenshot below shows just a small percentage of the results of a search for 'pizza' in New York.
As you can see there are more than ten pizza results for this area. Now even though my nearest pizza restaurant isn't in the top ten results I can find it very quickly on the map.
Mmm pizza ...
