Even to the outsider, it’s pretty amazing to see what a busy New York City restaurant pulls off every day: Kitchen staff, wait staff, reservations, and food orders.

If they don’t get every piece of that puzzle right, the whole thing breaks down. 

Sweetbitter is the story of a young woman named Tess, who moves to New York and quickly finds that the city doesn’t stop for a 22-year-old to find her way. 

Stu Zicherman is the Executive Producer and Showrunner for “Sweetbitter” and Paul Sparks plays Howard, the restaurant manager who hires Tess even though she has no qualifications to work in a high-end restaurant.
