When you’re out to dinner with friends, how many times do you check your mobile phone? As a whole, there’s no doubt we’re doing it much more than even just a few years ago. No scientific study needed here to know our lives have begun revolving more and more around our smart phones. Welp, not anymore at least not at Eva Restaurant in Los Angeles. The restaurant is offering patrons a five percent discount if they give up their mobile phones to the staff when they are seated.

Owner Mark Gold told KPCC radio on Tuesday that the policy is an attempt to create an environment where diners connect to each other instead of technology. He added that the approach hasn’t been implemented to satisfy restaurant-goers that get annoyed by phone chatter or the glow of smartphone screens.

So what do you think?
