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 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. “

 

Dinner For Two Give Away.

We understand even the seasoned dater needs an assist from time to time. From the first date to keeping love alive we got you! We have partnered with Joli Seattle to give you a dinning experience for two. Just follow the directions below. There is even an additional FREE Gift.

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!

Tomonik aspiring entrepreneur and baker. 

A Man About Style has partnered with Le Foodie co & Maasi Development Project to help a young entrepreneur achieve her dream. Tomonik is a young Kenyan girl from the Maasai Development Project. Maasai Development Project rescues young girls from Female Genital Mutilation and forced marriage. Tomonik’s story has inspired us since she is an aspiring entrepreneur. After graduating from secondary school, she began baking bread in a coal oven that the MDP has at their center. Her passion for bread making grew with her skills and she began selling bread in her village. Tomonik’s bread has since gained popularity and she has fallen in love with the business of baking. She now wants to open a bakery!  With every purchase of a Le Foodie Co bakers delight T-shirt this quarter, they are donating 20% of the net proceeds from the  "Bakers Delight" T-shirts and 10% of the net proceeds from the other t-shirts to help Tomonik bring her vision to life! So help us change a life fashionably.

About Maasi Development Project. 

MDP Sponsored Children:  

  • MDP Education Center(MDPEC) was founded in November 2010.  The centre has been home to over 70 girls throughout the years. Working with the Child Services Department, MDPEC is a home that is a safe refuge for many girls that have been rescued from forced early marriage, FGM (Female Genital Mutilation), or have been “at-risk”. They are orphaned or come from a single parent household who cannot support them and are at risk of being sold into marriage by a close family member.  MDP provides a safe environment to live and provides education to each child, through college, university or technical School, resulting from their government qualifying exam scores.

MDP Sponsored Trips:  

MDP provides the opportunity for people around the world to join them for free medical/dental mission trips to the interior of Maasailand.  Thus, sharing the opportunity to serve the Maasai community in remote areas with much needed medical and dental needs. These trips also provide opportunities to do building projects and work with our children. On the mission trips a safari is also provided with a stay at a 5-star safari camp.

MDP Awareness Speaking:

 MDP welcomes the opportunity to come to your school, church, organization, or fundraiser to help bring awareness to the plight of the “at risk” girls in Maasailand. School presentations provide a hands-on opportunity for children to experience another culture.
