Steven Ariel

Executive Chef Steven Ariel brings a rich collection of culinary experiences to W Seattle’s dining operations and TRACE restaurant and bar. This innovative culinarian has traveled widely and worked within a broad array of cuisines, from Asian and Pacific Rim fusion, to Northern Italian and French.

Born in Honolulu, Steven was raised on Hawaii's Big Island, on a macadamia nut and coffee farm. Chef Ariel’s extensive knowledge of the kitchen along with a passion for food and wine pairings comes courtesy of intensive study at the University of Hawaii, the Thai Cooking School in Bangkok, Thailand and completion of the introductory course from the Court of Master Sommeliers. Diners at TRACE are privy to Chef Ariel’s bounty of knowledge and delighted by his cultivated and deftly sophisticated touch with the local, seasonal and organic products from the Pacific Northwest.
