As you watch Sweetbitter Season 1 Episode 1 online, you won't be able to help but root for our protagonist, Tess, as she makes the brave move to the Big Apple to find who she is away from the mundane life in her hometown. She gets just the shake-up she wanted when she gets hired at 22, a 5-star restaurant with big expectations and a small amount of patience for mistakes. While Tess gets a feel for her new job, her prospective co-workers get a feel for her and it seems like they are left wanting. What's a girl to do in a new city at a new job with responsibilities piled as high as their dirty dishes? Acclimate. However, since she has moved alone with no friends, siblings or boyfriends, that may prove harder than she initially thought. It especially doesn't help that she can't even get an ounce of support from her family back at home. Nevertheless, 22 isn't all bad experiences and bleeding nails. With a little help from others and a delicious oyster with a hot mystery guy, Tess gets through the prep part of the restaurant on her first day without breaking down into tears next to the dishrack.
