On the 16th floor of the brand new 5-Star Lotte Hotel Seattle is one of the best brunch spots I’ve ever visited. Overlooking breathtaking Puget Sound, the surrounding mountains, and the city of Seattle, Charlotte Restaurant and Lounge was one of our favorite dining experiences in the city. Under the guidance of Executive Chef Alexander La Motte, who has previously helped restaurants attain Michelin Stars, we were served a gorgeous meal featuring fresh, locally sourced ingredients, all expertly plated in an aesthetically perfect manner, not a single micro green out of place.

I enjoyed a bowl fresh berries featuring blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries along with a flavorful shakshouka dish topped with micro greens. The red sauce of my shakshouka was full of hearty, thinly sliced roasted peppers, tomatoes, and onions, and the eggs that topped off this flavorful North African dish had Lucious, golden yolks that were the most flavorful eggs I’d had in ages. Robin ordered a fruit and yogurt parfait topped with diced apples, gluten free granola, and fresh cherries, along with a side of perfectly roasted breakfast potatoes, and as his main dish he selected a chickpea crêpe filled with Dungeness crab, fresh produce, and roasted peppers, covered in a delicious orange sauce, with two poached eggs and micro greens on top.
Everything was positively delectable, and they were tremendously accommodating of my gluten allergy and our pescatarian diet. I will absolutely be back to try their other meals on our next visit, which is so exciting, because their menu reflects seasonally available ingredients, and changes regularly, meaning that they’re always cooking up something new, fresh, and local. I absolutely love places that mix up their menus, because it means we can keep going back time after time and trying out their newest creations.
Whether you’re staying at Lotte Hotel Seattle, you’re a local in the mood for some fantastic food and views, or just visiting the city in search of an excellent meal, Charlotte Restaurant and Lounge will be your new favorite place to eat in Seattle.
