A Restaurant for Accountants

Il Mulino:  This downtown Italian eatery serves up winning Italian food in super-sized portions.  “The unsuspecting guest won’t know what to make of all the food that flows his way,” notes Washington Post food critic, Tom Sietsema, in his recent review.  With an endless parade of complimentary appetizers and overwhelmingly huge plates of pasta and other Italian dishes, Il Mulino is the perfect spot for hungry accountants.  Why?  Accountants know how to plan for the impending feast, and budget enough room in their appetite.  Project accountants are in luck – after each course, you’ll want to monitor your progress toward the goal (in this case, saving enough room for the wonderful cheesecake or tartufo at the end of the meal).  With food this good, though, you can hardly be blamed for variances in your initial analysis.  Take any dividends home to Fido.   

Best for: Project accountants, job cost accountants, earned value management specialists
