In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Lotte Hotel Seattle is celebrating with a limited-time storytelling exhibit and specialty dishes offering a nod to Lotte Hotel Seattle’s Korean heritage.

Through May 30, Lotte Hotel Seattle will showcase the works of Korean artist Sunyoung Kwon (she owns a renowned studio in Bellevue) throughout its 16th floor At her studio, Kwon mentors students in the delicate art of blending sophisticated sensitivity into both two- and three-dimensional materials. The showcase will feature specially commissioned pieces that reflect the artist’s mastery of portraiture, embodying her deep-rooted Korean heritage.

In addition, all month long, the on-site Charlotte Restaurant & Lounge will offer a pair of special dishes to honor the Seattle hotel’s Korean heritage. The Golden Airline Chicken with Pearl Barley Risotto features a comforting ginseng chicken broth, traditionally made for children or elders to promote healing in South Korea. In the dish, the pearl barley pairs with English peas and baby rainbow carrots and is finished with Parmigiano Reggiano and umami crunch. The restaurant will also serve a Matcha Blossom Cake, celebrating the flavors of matcha as a nod to the historic South Jeolla Province, a region renowned for producing Korea’s finest green tea.
