    Bay Area restaurants and markets are feeling the effects, following the disaster in Japan.

    Owners of Umami in San Francisco say one of their chefs works with suppliers at the Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo. The market is the world's largest, and while it is still open, its supply has dwindled due to lack of fishermen and transportation.

    Japanese beer will also be hard to come by. Breweries in Japan are bottling water to stay in the country, instead of exporting their products.
