About Conversation Seattle

Helmed by Executive Chef Derek Simcik and Executive Pastry Chef Kate Sigel, Conversation provides a sensory experience through culinary offerings in a setting that reminds us of what’s most important. Take a break from running around in downtown Seattle (or escape a busy day at the Washington State Convention Center) and allow yourself to enjoy face-to-face time with the people who matter most in your life.

Inspired by Chef Derek’s international travels as a child, the restaurant menus at Conversation are a reflection of foods his family enjoyed together while abroad, reflecting his passion for pushing the boundaries of culinary creativity while still providing a sense of thoughtful nostalgia. 

Adding to the story, Chef Kate Sigel’s pastries and desserts bring a cleverly sweet perspective to the table while the design of our downtown Seattle restaurant provides guests with a captivating yet comfortable background for connection.

Take a seat. We can't wait to meet you.

The Ultimate Guide to hotel etiquette || The Sound Hotel

Travelers often expect a whole host of accommodations and amenities during their stay at a hotel. But it’s as much on the guest as it is hotel employees to foster a pleasant experience. In this weeks episode we visited the luxurious Sound Hotel. Thanks to Bryan Everly director or marketing and sales at the sound we give you a complete guide on proper hotel etiquette . We cover everything from how to get an upgrade, who to tip, and what not take from a room. Even those who would like to propose or be wed weren’t left out.

The Sound offers an experience that’s always of the moment. It’s located between landmarks like the Space Needle and Pike Place Market, and down the street from iconic Seattle retailers like Nordstrom and REI. It’s around the corner from Amazon, while just steps away from legendary coffeehouses, museums, pubs and international dining. The Sound is both your central launch pad for adventure and a stylish, comfortable place to recharge when the day is over.

The Art of Dating || Featuring Joli Seattle

A great date should have your personality hidden in the details. Remember you can't connect with someone if they're connecting with the fake you, so leave the posturing at home. Cherish the responsibility of choosing the activity, the company,  and the setting. You never know this could become your reality, well at least the sentiments. With the ingredients of  ambience and aesthetic one can create an environment of romance.  A moment that she will remember long after even if you aren’t “THE ONE. “ You don’t need a suit. Just  make sure to wear a smile.  If you do it right, it won’t matter how the bill is paid.  Besides she doesn’t need you for a free meal because at the end of the day we all just want something real. In the off chance you take an L, Make sure the foods good. “

I started this blog 2 years ago to mainly talk style, and I've learned in that time that actually, I can have more of an impact and connect with others through my stories. My life has not been perfect. I've made some huge, monumental mistakes, and had to learn things the hard way at times. I've also had many successes and a whole lot of fun, so that's why I've decided to shift gears a bit and focus more on stories and style together. I want to share my genuine raw experiences in hopes that they will enable me to connect, learn, and grow with you guys!

Fall Inspiration

It’s the most wonderful time of the year (and no, we are not talking about X-mas or the return of  Pumpkin spice lattes)!. For the fashionisto, fall is a sacred time where one can tout his mastery of textures and layering.

Layering up: the AMAS way

You will want to invest in pieces made of Merino Wool and Cashmere. As far as layers go, cardigans are your friend. The easy hack this season, is to make your outwear the outfit. One simple t-shirt or button up - with jeans and boots - can be elevated with the use of a topcoat, quilted vest or Peacoat. Switch out the jeans with slacks, add a tie with a tie bar, and that’s another sophisticated look for the office. No matter what your style is, make sure your autumn looks are as crisp as the weather.
