I can do BBQ very well, but don't want to be too burnt out (smoked) by the end of the day. A future venture perhaps.

Just a regular solid restaurant starting up is probably doomed to fail.
I feel like Bostonians don't know what they want in terms of restaurants, they just follow the crowd. That makes it that much harder to cater to them besides opening up a lunch spot for the working. Just like how you mentioned how one would need to "trendy" up a BBQ place.
