Restaurant owners are fed up with customers glued to their cell phones — so some have decided to give discounts to diners who surrender them at the door.

At Sushi Lounge in Hoboken, New Jersey, management decided to implement a “Reconnect Tuesday” as a way to rekindle the flame in the dimly lit dining room with a 20% off discount to those who put their phone in a box at the table and leave it there until the check comes. 

The staff at Lebro’s, an Italian restaurant near Buffalo in Getzville, New York, think Sundays are as sacred as their “famous” red sauce for homemade pastas like cheese tortellini and sun dried tomato ravioli.  So they give 10% off every week on the day of rest to people who put their phones in the bread basket a waiter or waitress covers with a napkin until the end of the meal.
