If you think the sight of a gang of men in suits playing with balls is a good laugh, then La Paquerette is the place to be. This wooden prefab with huge windows doubles as a restaurant at lunchtime and restaurant-cum-bar in the evenings, and is sited in the centre of the square next to the green. While quite expensive as a lunch venue, its terrace, with its huge tubs of flowers and Gallically sulky serving staff, is not at all bad as a place to meet your capitalist friends for a drink after a hard day grubbing money. Good for the Barbican and easily accessible to Moorgate and Liverpool Street stations if you need to make a quick getaway.
