    Sounds like your QSR won't be QS enough. I could help w/ that. Give you the SF discount of $350/hr.

    Yea, there are a few openings in different areas of boston. Not everyone wants to drive to m&m (and even then, i've only been once but wasn't floored. will try again with another menu item. still good though). The problem is do you do a straight forward one, or trendy it up a bit (while keeping the food good). Hard for startup places without anything going for them to last. Just a regular solid restaurant starting up is probably doomed to fail.

    Do you need in-house counsel? I'll accept payment in the form of alcohol.

    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.

    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.

    There are some smaller operations that make good food without added flash.


    By "trendy" up a bbq place i mainly meant in comparison to a real bbq place from all over the south. Basically most look like someone bought out a mcdonalds, put yellow tinted lighting in and called it a day. I mean, unless you've been around forever as an established bbq place who does well in regional and national competitions and have a good reputation, you can't just open a place like that up. Especially since boston doesn't have a big bbq community.


    If capital, real esate, and manpower is a problem for you, why don't you try a food truck?

    I think you are buying into the local media's take on Boston dining at face value. Reading The Improper and Boston Magazine will brainwash you into believing your quote is true. For me, the people that follow the crowd are the suburbans who come into the South End and dine at Stella or Stephi's on Tremont to be seen out. These are the people that skim the Improper or BM and decide where to eat. There are a ton of great restaurants that have been chugging along but are not owned by Barbara Lynch or Ken Oringer, and do not get the lion's share of press around these parts. Not to mention, there is also a huge Chowhound and Grub Street community spreading the word about noteworthy places.

    What do you need a partner for? To bankroll the idea?
