(NECN) – Restaurants across the country are beginning to crack down on cell phone use.

Student reporter Yasmine Julmisse talked to Boston residents about how this affects them.

Some Bostonians say they can go the whole meal without reaching for their cell phone, while others say they cannot.

“Me and my friends sometimes play that game at dinner where you put your phone on the table and then the first person who grabs their phone has to pay for the whole meal,” said one resident.

“It’s addictive. It’s a reflex. It’s just something to do,” said another.
