'Ditch your device' for dinner discount

We've all heard of mobile phones being used to offer discounts in the form of vouchers and coupons, but one restaurant in Los Angeles is going in the opposite direction.

Owner and chef Mark Gold hopes the gimmick will encourage people to connect with each other over their meal, and stem growing acceptance of mobile phone usage in social situations.
