My first thought for mounting your piano hinge is to add a narrow strip at the top of the table side wide enough so its outside surface is flush with the legs. This would allow the hinge barrel to rest on the edge of this strip and make the lid swing beyond the legs. Such a strip would be mostly inconspicuous, but you could add a similar strip all around so that it looked like an intentional design feature. Otherwise, I think the articulated hinge idea suggested above is your best answer.
