Savor Our Center City Philadelphia Restaurant

With its delicious, approachable menus and upbeat ambiance, 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: worldly, progressive, delicious, artfully presented, healthful and comforting. Time and again, loyal patrons return to the Architects Building in Rittenhouse Square for restaurant draws like popular brunch specials, a thriving juice program, the raved-about home-style jerk chicken, one of the country’s top bar programs 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.

Meet the Chef

Chef Mackenson “Mack” Horebe has previously worked under a number of top chefs and has held key roles within Kimpton Hotel & Restaurants in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Horebe grew up in a Haitian household in Philadelphia. Cooking was a big part of Horebe’s upbringing and that influence can be found in his cooking at Square 1682 today.
