East Bay restaurants that use local ingrediants?

I've realized that one of the most effective ways I can reduce my use of fossil fuels is to eat local foods. No more Kiwi kiwi's for me : )

I go to the farmer's markets and cook at home when feasible, but that's not the case everyday. Sometimes we eat out or order out. Is there a list available of places in the East Bay that tend to use local ingredients? I imagine it's harder to do on an institutional level, to get a reliable source of ingredients from local farms. But I also imagine that some try. Local and in season ingredients would be even better!

BTW I'm looking primarily for casual places. It's rare that we get a babysitter and date night and head to Chez Panisse.

Any recommendations?
