[Paris] lunches as a stopover

I am taking the train in Europe, and both directions get lunchtime in Paris. My trains have a fair gap between them but are into Nord and out of Est, and then the reverse (but with Eurostar checkin).

I realise there are quite a few posts on where to eat near both Nord and L'Est but they all assume that I just need a quick bite between trains, whilst I have a bit longer.

Rather than specific recommendations, how far can I safely travel in a very long lunch break, and what areas will that cover for me? Obviously I need to make the trains, and would prefer not to have to run...

Travelling out from Amsterdam I have the longest, on a weekday - in Nord at 1138, out at 1543 from Est. Second is on Easter Saturday (which I guess will shorten the list) with probably an 11am-ish arrival and 1613 Eurostar.

I'm just not too sure on what I can safely achieve in this block of time, including transport and having enough time to enjoy the meal.
