Executive Chef/GM Caitlin Mateo

Square 1682's Executive Chef Caitlin Mateo is one of Philadelphia's contemporary rising culinary stars and her acclaim is in good reason. Having studied culinary arts at Philadelphia's The Restaurant School, Mateo began cooking at the age of 18, with Chef Marianne Cuneo Powell at the popular Little Café, just over the Ben Franklin Bridge, in Voorhees, NJ. Mateo honed her craft as Sous Chef for renowned Philadelphia Chef Marcie Turney, before joining forces with Square 1682 three years ago.

Now leading day-to-day operations at Square 1682 - from vision through fruition - Mateo has fostered a growing following for her Modern American cuisine that brings exquisite ingredients together in a skillful manner that "lets the flavors speak for themselves." Mateo's dedication to cooking healthy, delicious food is a tenet of Square 1682's cuisine and in keeping with her very own ethos.
