Eva restaurant on Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles has instituted an offer of 5 percent off your bill if you hand your cell phone at the door.
The offer is part of the restaurant’s attempt to coerce diners into leaving technology aside for the meal, which creates a more pleasant atmosphere.
Owner/Chef Mark Gold stated, “For us, it’s really about people disrupting other guests. Eva is home, and we want to create that environment of home, and we want people to connect again.”
He wants people to care about each other and enjoy the food and service.
Waiters propose the offer when they introduce themselves.
Gold claims that around half of his customers take up the offer, and many express thanks at the opportunity to escape from their devices for a while.
