A US restaurant are attempting to put an end to "distracted dining", by offering diners a 5% to part company with their electronic devices when they are eating.
Eva Restaurant in Los Angeles are hoping that the discount will encourage diners to check their phones and tablets at the door, therefore creating a better atmosphere. Owner Mark Gold, who coined the term "distracted dining", stated that the move is based around the idea that "Eva is home and we want to create that environment of home, and we want to connect people again" The idea of connecting with real people as opposed to your virtual friends is certainly a refreshing one, however it remains to be seen whether or not Eva's guests will be tempted by the discount and whether the initiative will be a success.
