If you’ve ever swirled your wine at a fancy restaurant without really knowing why you’re doing it, Sweetbitter on Starz is the show for you. The new series, based on the best-selling novel by Stephanie Danler, follows Tess (Ella Purnell), a 22-year-old backwaitress at one of New York City’s finest restaurants. Initially hesitant and shy, Tess becomes engrossed in the secret world of NYC servers and all the good food, wine, and sex that come with it.
