Le Danton (103, blvd St-Germain) – Not wanting to float away on a caffeinated buzz, we switch beverages at this bustling brasserie. I order what is, to me, a completely normal-sized glass of Leffe; our not exactly diminutive French friend complains that the beer is “American-sized,” and doesn’t even come close to finishing it. Even after some teasing and largely ineffectual translations of the phrase “to man up” – it’s only 10 ounces or so – he remains firm in his sober convictions. Oh, well. (4/06)
