Denver Food Scene

Hi - I am in the process of moving/changing my life - selling the house I raised my kids in, getting out of Chicago bleak and brutal winters and starting fresh.
I have offers in Denver and New Orleans - and my daughter is in Boulder and keeps telling me I will love Denver. But I am concerned - it didn't seem like a very strong foodie scene when I visited - lots of chains but where are the cute little local groceries or the ethnic grocery store/cafes you find in Chicago? The neighborhood wine shops with their own followings? Food trucks?

Its not like I am picking a place based on food but when I saw Colorado -let alone Denver - doesn't have its own board, made me wonder. Whats the take from others who have moved from hot food scenes to Denver?
