From its cozy little post in the heart of Newton Highlands, 51 Lincoln bridges the gap between the city and the suburbs with a sophisticated, locally-sourced menu that's practical in its approach to cost. Diners don't have to head downtown to satisfy their craving for artfully crafted and beautifully presented fare.

Chef-owner Jeff Fournier's artistry expands beyond the plate - he is also responsible for the artwork that graces the walls in the dining room. His abstract images combined with framed woodcut prints, cherry wood tables, and warm yellow and orange banquettes, give the room the feel of a lively, colorful exhibit - with great food and wine.
