SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — If you’ve dined out in the last decade, you’ve seen it happen.
Couples, even entire families with their phones in one hand and a fork in the other.
But one Fort Worth restaurant has a policy that will find customers engaged in actual conversation while enjoying their food.
Tim Love, the owner of Caterina’s Ristorante located in the Forth Worth stockyards tells NBC News Channel that when customers walk in to his restaurant, their cellphones will be locked in a bag.
The bag is unlocked when you are walking out the door.
But what if you need to be available to whoever may have to get in touch with you.
No problem. Love says customers can just give out the restaurant’s phone number and they will bring the phone to your table.
Love says the response from customers has been “100%” since Caterina’s opened last week although some who were thinking of dining their are ranting on social media, saying they won’t be eating their if they have to lock up their phones.
