Local Food in Local Restaurants

This may seem like the wrong season to ask this question, but what are restaurants in NoVa that serve locally produced food? This would include meat, fish, milk, eggs, etc., in addition to fruits and vegetables. To the extent possible, I buy local foods to cook at home, and I would like to patronize restaurants that do the same.

Besides the standard American cuisine, I'm thinking that maybe some ethnic restaurants have local producers that produce foods specifically targeted to them.

Any suggestions?

  1. Liberty Tavern tries their best to make a lot of things from scratch in-house like bread, sausage, pasta, but I do not think they locally source their ingredients.

    Tallula uses local produce normally I believe.

    And Restaurant Eve and it's restaurant group try to use mostly local produce and ingredients and often use the farmers markets in Alexandria, Del Rey I believe.
