Restaurants with "house-grown" produce

I just found out that Cafe Gratitude now has a farm -- Be Love Farm -- and is supplying some (but not all) of its produce from there, with plans to expand that operation.

I thought it might be informative to put together a list of places that use at least some produce they grow themselves.

Cafe Gratitude
The French Laundry
Duarte's Tavern

      Sebastopol's Sunday farm market has closed, but French Garden on Highway 12 hasn't.

      They offered incredible beets, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, leeks, lettuce, cilantro, arugula, spinach and more.

      Also, they had some fine looking pastries displayed on the bar top.

      The whole market enterprise is inside the bar.

      1. Mustard's Grill (pre-fire, anyway)

        Pauline's Pizza
        Madrona Manor

          Mentioned in the 7x7 article was Greens, which is a classic. And Spruce's sister Village Pub was mentioned in the Chron article.

          I'm not sure Alembic (it sounds like their garden isn't producing yet, and that they're only going to be growing herbs), and Incanto and Zuppa (which are just growing herbs) really count.
