Airbnb has “acqhired” Fondu, maker of a “bite-size restaurant review” iPhone app.

The Fondu team will join Airbnb’s product group in San Francisco, but other assets of the company were not purchased. The service, which focused on recommendations from trusted friends, is to be shut down Nov. 1.

Fondu CEO Gauri Maglik noted that the two companies share a common goal of helping users discover offline experiences.
