Paris Chic/Gourmand Saturday Lunch between trains with kids - help needed!

I'll be travelling with my husband and two children changing trains in Paris on the last day of our holiday.

We have a few hours to kill and would like to have a great lunch to conclude our break at up to 50 Euros per person.

We're getting in at Gare de Lyon and have some luggage so we thought of going straight to Le Train Bleu but it looks a little pricey - I wouldn't book without a watertight reccomendations.

I've eaten at lots of places in Paris. Atelier Maitre Albert (the right balance of sophisticated food simple enough for children to eat too at reasonable prices) is shut saturday lunchtimes. Plus there's the luggage factor: I like L'Hotel and Brasserie Lutetia but dragging our suitcases might dull the experience a little (but we're willing to drag them a reasonable way for an exciting new experience). I have a whole list of new little bistronomique restaurants I'd love to try but the don't seem quite the right space for a 7 and 10 year old who would enjoy a large and busy brasserie. Eating En Terrasse would be great on the last day of our holiday. We have up to 3 hours to kill and children with wide-ranging tastbuds and would love a recommendation.
