Sweetbitter is a half-hour drama that tells the story of Tess (Ella Purnell), a 22-year-old who arrives in New York City ready to pursue a new life. When she is invited to train at one of the best restaurants in town, she thinks she has found a steady income and a safe place to wait. But Tess is quickly intoxicated by the chaotic, adrenaline-packed world of behind the scenes: tasting expensive wines, exploring bars, and learning who she can trust.
In season two, Tess has the job and is ready to invest in it. She enters, but soon realizes that she won't survive in the restaurant if she doesn't play. Tess finds her appetite aroused. She is hungry for knowledge, but investing in this life means more than knowing the difference between Bordeaux and Burgundy wine. Tess discovers that knowledge alone is not enough: she needs to be able to use it, to move from head to body. She needs experience.
