    Shot from a mundane, provincial past, Tess comes to New York in the stifling summer of 2006. Alone, knowing no one, living in a rented room in Williamsburg, she manages to land a job as a backwaiter at a celebrated downtown Manhattan restaurant. This begins the year we spend with Tess as she starts to navigate the chaotic, enchanting, punishing, and privileged life she has chosen as well as the remorseless and luminous city around her. What follows is her education.

    Tess ankommer til storbyen i sin søgen efter et liv, hun endnu ikke kan definere, men hun har et brændende ønske om at blive til nogen og høre til et sted. Hun får et eftertragtet job som tjener på en eksklusiv restaurant på Union Square og opdager, at hun træder ind i en verden med et stærkt opdelt hierarki. Hun er så grøn, at hun aldrig har smagt en østers og må nu lære de forskellige arter, de rigtige betegnelser for Bourgognevine og at værdsætte at spise terrine af svinehoved.
