Enjoy fresh food from a pop up restaurant inspired by Philadelphia’s rich history, Square 1682. The name is a homage to Philly’s founding father William Penn and his creation of the city park. Even though this spot is named after American history, it uses very modern techniques in its food preparation. Only the finest and local ingredients are used in the seasonal menu, while the restaurant itself is leed-certified green, where everything is sustainable. Perfect for those who appreciate the finer things in life, Chef Caitlin Mateo's creations and the touches of Philadelphia's history throughout the venue will charm all. Guests will arrive to Hotel Palomar’s Square 1682 and be escorted to the second floor private dining room. There the guests will sit down to a perfected prepared pre-fixe menu with beer or wine pairings. The executive chef and sommelier will introduce the group to the first course and explain why locally grown sustainable ingredients are so important and how they paired each dish with the perfect drink. The pop-up restaurant in the private dining space changes with the season so from a seafood boil to an autumn harvest you will have a changing experience.

"Taking almost daring risks while delivering spot-on New American flavors, this sleek yet informal eatery in the Hotel Palomar is a refreshing option near already "trendy" Rittenhouse Square” Zagat
“From the moment it opened inside the Palomar Hotel—a phenomenal Kimpton property—Square 1682 has garnered serious plaudits and plenty of devoted fans. No wonder: The food is creative and expertly executed, the beverage program is ambitious, and the restaurant itself is LEED certified, a first in Philadelphia.” Brian Freedman, Where Traveler
