Tired of meals punctuated by Twitter updates and Instagram photos, one restaurant has offered a solution to smartphone interrupted dinners. Based in Los Angeles, Eva offers a 5% discount off of the bill for all diners that opt to leave their devices at the front. Chef and owner Mark Gold says about half of diners take him up on his offer.
Eva is home, and we want to create that environment of home, and we want people to connect again. It's about two people sitting together and just connecting, without the distraction of a phone, and we're trying to create an ambience where you come in and really enjoy the experience and the food and the company.
