Baby Grand

Dinner last night at De Belhamel in Amsterdam, which I commend.  The menu includes "Petit grand dessert".  I've been trying to work that out: there seems to be a not very well defined term "Grand Dessert" for an elaborate dessert comprising assorted smaller desserts.  This would be a nouvelle version of it.

Incidentally, the restaurant is proud of its "art nouveau" decor (it doesn't call it "nieuwe kunst").  It occurs to me that the adjective is relatively accurate, as compared with its use by New College.

I'm more confident about Little Big Horn.   The battle was fought on the banks of the Little Bighorn river.  Which is a tributary of the Bighorn river.  The Bighorn river was named by fur trader François Larocque for the bighorn sheep he saw there.  And the bighorn sheep is so called for its big horns.
