thanks for the info.
I actually found a few places on Nina Planck's site.......jeesh, she's even in CA....
They only let cool people live here. Or maybe it is the water, they drug it to make us all cool.
Actually, I bet there are TF restaurants in other areas with a high awareness of local foods and lots of people wanting to eat organic, whole foods, but we have so many people here and grow such a huge variety of food that there just might be a better chance for TF-friendly food establishments to survive than in areas where the local/organic food scene isn't as prominent.
There's another in my general area I forgot to mention, Cozmic Cafe in Placerville http://www.thecozmiccafe.com/
, they're more vegetarian oriented but do have some things with dairy, eggs or fish. There's another in Auburn, Pacha Mama's, that I think is mostly vegan but also organic, whole foods with a lot of local ingredients. And I just remembered a TF-friendly brewpub in Ukiah, CA, Ukiah Brewing Co. http://www.ukiahbrewingco.com/restaurant/menu/
, they're all organic with a lot of local ingredients including meat, eggs and dairy (not raw, and they have plenty of non-TF stuff too, like fried foods and soda).
Oh, and the deli at my food co-op! BriarPatch Community Market http://www.briarpatch.coop/
. Again, plenty of white flour products (pasta, pizza dough, etc.), but also lots of organic, whole, local foods ready-to-eat.
