Get a Five Percent Discount for Dining without Your Cell Phone

One Los Angeles restaurant is offering a discount to patrons who leave their cell phones at the door.

Surrender your phone and enjoy five percent off your meal.

That's not too bad, right?

For those who can't eat a meal without their phone along for the ride, this is probably a tough sell.

But for those who enjoy a little break from technology, the discount may be incentive enough to "unplug" for just a bit.

Eva Restaurant chef and owner told Fox News, "We just want people to connect again. It's eliminating one more distraction from the dinner experience."

He adds, "We've only had a positive response," with the Associated Press reporting that nearly half of the patrons take advantage of the discount.
