I would have thought that 1 table width around the perimeter or front of cafe or restaurant is sufficient as in the Bodega whilst the Newport has a Parisian style annexation of Rory Gallagher place.Tha slalom like nature of walking down French Church Street now is a pity.On a related note it might be a good idea to start pedestrianise Academy Street,Devonshire street and the streets off Emmett Place and the rear of the Savoy which would give that area just off Patrick Street a boost and take pressure off the Hugenot quarter.
