Eatery makes you pay for food you waste

Your mother may have told you to clean your plate. Well, now one local restaurant is taking that a step further. They’re charging customers for food they don’t finish.

At Hayashi Ya restaurant in New York, it's all you can eat for $26.95, unless your eyes are bigger than your stomach and then — like the sign says - it will cost you 3% extra.

The manager said he implemented the extra cost two years ago to help with the restaurant’s bottom line.
