At 51 Lincoln, a fruity summertime staple is cooked to look just like another warm-weather favorite. Watermelon “steak” salad ($11) is a mainstay at Jeff Fournier’s upbeat neighborhood joint, where his own paintings adorn the walls.

He serves it with golden beets, French feta, red-beet vinaigrette, and fresh herbs — plucked straight from his rooftop garden.
