Without a Phone Eating Out Is Cheaper?

That's true that when I sit with my friends somewhere in a resaturant, it does irritate when everybody can't but play games on phones or surf the Interner or do whatever except simply talk to me.

Eva Restaurant in Los Angeles offers diners a 5% discount for leaving their phones with the receptionist for the entirety of the meal. The new policy went into effect a bit more than a month ago, according to chef Mark Gold, who runs the restaurant with his wife, Alejandra.

Since then, the chef estimates that 40% to 50% of customers have opted in and ditched their phones.

This is really cool. We've got so accostomed to mobiles that it is hard to leave them somewhere. At the same time it is sad that such future profit is needed to make people forget about their phones even for a short period of time and begin to interact with each other without any distraction from the talk.

It's a good idea! Without our cells we can really enjoy our meal)

Good idea for cells' fans! It's a motivation) But as for me, I'm so fed up with all devices at work that I do my best to get rid of it while resting.
