Dining Poll: Would You Enjoy Phone-Free Dining That Comes with a Discount?

Confession: When I dine or drink out, my phone is almost always next to me on the table or the bar (Awful, right?). I like snapping pics of food, checking in, tweeting about where I eat, and so on. But, really, I do feel bad about it. I should be more present. Pay attention to my dining companion. Soak up my surroundings. Rely on my memory and not the IMDB app to figure out if it was Jill Eikenberry from L.A. Law or Catherine Hicks from 7th Heaven who starred opposite William Shatner in Star Trek IV (It was Hicks, if you’re wondering).

The restaurateurs behind Eva restaurant in West Hollywood have had similar thoughts and are giving diners the opportunity to check their mobile phones at the door in exchange for a 5% discount. Would you take them up on this inspired offer? Weigh in on today’s poll!
