BROOKLYN - A local eatery is taking distractions out of the equation for some diners.

The Greenpoint restaurant “Eat” holds silent suppers every week, giving people the chance to enjoy their meals without loud talking, trendy music or cellphones.

Managing Chef Nicholas Nauman says his goal is to bring awareness to the intention of eating, and was inspired after spending time in northeast India.

The silent suppers are popular, but customers can also enjoy regular talkative meals throughout the week.
