Google Local Business

Google seems to have launched or is testing a feature to have Google Search read details about a local business listing. This might be in only some regions, as I cannot replicate this in New York but I received a few reports from India about this feature.

In the local panel, some listings have this button that says "Hear about this place" with a speaker icon. You click on it, and it reads the business name and the business category for that business.

This reminds me of the hear this out load feature Google has for some featured snippets.
