Flavors of Philly at our Center City restaurant

121 South 17th St., Philadelphia, PA, 19103

Savor Our Center City Philadelphia Restaurant

With its delicious, approachable menus and upbeat ambience, Square 1682 has become a beloved Center City gathering place thanks to its great food, great drinks and great people. Our Chef's New American fare could be described as: progressive, delicious, artfully presented, healthful and comforting. An added bonus: He cultivates some of the sustainable ingredients herself in an aeroponic garden on the 25th floor. Time and again, loyal patrons return to the Architects Building in Rittenhouse Square for restaurant draws like popular lunch tray specials, a thriving juice program, the raved-about avocado toast, one of the country’s top bar programs, frequent live music (our lead bartender is also a musician) and seasonal patio seating. If you’re hosting an intimate dining affair for a small or large group, be sure to explore our private dining options, too.
