Tastefully Brilliant Philadelphia Dining at Square 1682
What's in a name?
Square 1682 resides within Philadelphia's Center City, adjacent to Hotel Palomar Philadelphia, and is a tip of the hat to Pennsylvania's founding father William Penn and his insightful creation of the modern city park. In 1682, Mr. Penn created Rittenhouse Square (the "square" in our name) and four other similar plazas in Philadelphia in order to establish urban open spaces in the heart of the city.
Stepping into the future while relying on the rearview mirror of the past, Square 1682's design and operations team created a dining and bar establishment that epitomizes Mr. Penn's big thinking.
Executive Chef Caitlin Mateo Adds Flavor & Flair to the Square
Caitlin Mateo draws from only the best ingredients the region has to offer by sourcing from outstanding sustainably minded purveyors. In the kitchen, Mateo has a cooking ethos of sustainable, conservationist's cuisine. Sourcing locally from Philadelphia and surrounding area farmers ensures organic produce and meats. The results, Mateo says, are in the flavors. Her menu consists of dishes for all appetites including: small plates, plates for two, main courses, and accompaniments.
