Probably too little, frankly. The Landlord alone will want a security deposit and first and last month's rent, and even with a small place, that could eat up a large portion of the money. You have picked one of - if no THE - most Real Estate markets in the Country, even in a down market. Then, if you don't take a place that was already EXACTLY what you want, and EXACTLY what the Health Department requires, you will have to make alterations that would eat another chunk. Then, you have to have financial reserves. There's not too many businesses around that with profit in the first month.
