    “A Boston cut originally referred to a flavorful roast cut from the
    center of the sirloin. Today, the term is being applied to steaks cut
    from the center of the sirloin—a very tender cut. Boston cut also refers
    to the way that the side of beef is cut in New England: When a side of beef is butchered, it is cut
    across at right angles to the backbone, dividing the side into hind
    quarters and fore quarters.” (source)

    Having just re-watched the concert DVD of Sweeney Todd, I have to say that a barber shop that associates itself with butchering meat is raising all kinds of alarms for me.

    “Seamus isn’t happy about you running your operation on his turf. And when Seamus isn’t happy, people tend to get a Boston Cut.”

    So we are not talking about a special DVD edition of Good Will Hunting here, are we? :)

    And what does “Boston cut” mean in this context?
