Not exactly poertaining to restayrants though a similar, landlord concern on BOston's posh, Newbury street:

I meant to reply to your question weeks ago! I apologize.
Yesterday I met with one of the top Restaurant Brokers in New England. We touched upon your question, briefly. Landlords in fact are offering Leashold improvement as well as no rent periods during Construction/ renovations etc. Doing buildouts et all.
I believe it is really up to the tenant to use these options as a negotiating tool. We will be hearing more as new tenants push harder and harder. Landlords look at their own bottoms lines . The idea of another year of unoccupied space in their portfolios of properties certainly strikes quite a bit of fear. They also have "adjustable rates" themselves to worry about.
Revisiting your great question in a month or so should provde us all with even further, creative ideas put forward by tenants and excepted by landlords, which helps in opening those floodgates of change.
Thank you. - John

I think the group needs some additional referals and invitations to truly get us started. So, please help me to spread the word about us and up to date on your continuing discussions, if you wouldn't mind.
I am hoping to find out additional information shortly regarding additional concesions and provisions including build outs and such. I also an keep[ing tabs on New England area in general also.

It is such a tough time for borrowing in general and family money, investors aren't an option as often had been the case.

Thank you both for contributing here. - John

I'll be able to speak more intelligently about this in a few days. I looked at a closed restaurant a few weeks ago and gave up when I heard the rent quote. After chasing some dead ends, I gave them a call again and was asked by the leasing agent why I had changed my mind. My response was that because he had asked for an amount didn't mean that was as low as he would go. He agreed quickly and when we talked again today, he brought up the idea of lower rent. This will be the sixth joint I am trying to purchase and I've sold five so this discussion has a lot of appeal to me. How do we get more started?

What do you see ahead for deals offered by landlords this year in the Boston area? I hear that in NYC, landlords are making all kinds of concessions, even doing buildouts.
