From Berkeley to Nashville

So the SO has a job offer from Vanderbilt, and we're thinking of pulling up roots here in Berkeley, CA (home of Chez Panisse, Berkeley Bowl, and self-satisfied ex-hippie jerks). Of course my first worries were about the availability of CSAs, grass-fed beef, locally roasted coffee, and delicious cheap food of varying ethnicities. We're going to be visiting the city for the first time in a couple weeks. I would love to see your recommendations for good everyday restaurants and cafes. We especially love coffee, wood-fired pizza (Pizzaiolo in Oakland is our favorite), Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, and barbecue (of which we're sorely lacking in Berkeley). Any thoughts?
