Flavors of Philly at our Center City restaurant

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

In an abundance of caution, we’ve made the difficult decision to suspend operations temporarily. The decision was made as a preventative measure in support of social distancing guidelines and the well-being of our team, community and guests. Visit our website for updates and status of our re-opening.

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.
