LOTTE HOTEL SEATTLE announced today that Charlotte Restaurant & Lounge will exclusively offer a 3 or 4-Course Prix-Fixe Menu in the dining room, allowing guests to enjoy a fine dining experience in an approachable setting. Helmed by Executive Sous Chef Jeffrey Hunter, the Charlotte Restaurant culinary team has dazzled guests with special prix-fixe menus that have become core to their locally-sourced and seasonal approach to Contemporary Pacific Northwest cuisine.
“Since serving our first meal in 2020, we’ve been delighted to be the place where locals and visitors of Seattle celebrate special occasions big and small – from first dates to anniversaries to family reunions,” says Victor Caguindagan, General Manager of Lotte Hotel Seattle. “Our multi-course menus have really resonated with guests, and we’re excited about the creative opportunities this offers Chef Hunter and his team.”
For Summer 2022, the tasting menu will debut with starters including Hamachi with rhubarb, claytonia and sunflower and Dry-Aged Venison Carpaccio with elderberry, candied mushroom, porter aioli and a caraway-rye waffle. Mid-course offerings include Stone Oven Octopus with broccoli, brassicas, sunflower seeds and pickled caulinini and King Crab with cabbage, Peruvian potato, butter emulsion and finger lime. Main highlights include Nettle Cavatelli with hazelnuts, swiss chard and fresh ricotta and Smoked Duck Breast with squash, foie gras, foraged mushrooms and apple.
The menu will be ever-changing to reflect the freshest local ingredients . The 3-course menu is $120 per person and the 4-course menu is $150 per person, with beverage pairings optional. An extended Bar Menu will continue to be available to guests in the bar and lounge.
Complementing the cuisine are next-level cocktails and pairing local ingredients with Asian inspiration. Changing seasonally, the cocktail menu frequently features ingredients made in-house using seasonal fruits, herbs, and unique spices. The focus on flavor combinations, as well as texture, balance, and finish, create an authentic and memorable cocktail experience.
