Seattle vs. Boston?

Hi all,

We are considering relocating from Boston to Seattle and are wondering about the relative merits of the food scenes in each city. We're big foodies and love diverse ethnic food of all kinds: favorites being *authentic* Mexican, Thai, Ethiopian, and Sichuan but also a real love for fresh local ingredients and good produce. Some of our favorite spots in Boston include Craigie on Main, Rendezvous, and Deep Ellum. We're also big fans of craft cocktails and good beer (Drink and Lord Hobo being good spots in Boston).

Before coming to Boston we lived in the SF Bay Area so know a lot about the tremendous food scene there. While Boston has some great chow, it pales in comparison to SF which is a total foodie mecca.

We're wondering how Seattle stacks up - what will we find there that we can't get in Boston, and vice versa? Anything we'll miss in Seattle? Mainly we want to know if we can get a decent burrito there :-)
