It seems that some restaurants are looking for new ways to draw customers in, even if it means sacrificing your mobile device.
According to CNN, Eva Restaurant in Los Angeles is offering patrons a five percent discount if they check their cellphone with the front receptionist.
Head Chef Mark Gold, who runs the restaurant with his wife Alejandra, came up with the idea after having conversations with visitors who spoke on how annoying it was to dine while some people constantly used their phones.
“Eva is really about family and being at home. That’s what we want to exemplify,” Gold says. “We just want people to connect again.”
So, if you want to enjoy Fine Dining in Los Angeles’ Mid-City Beverly District at a discount, be prepared to leave your iPhone or Android phone at the front desk.
