Reading never tasted so good.
Stephanie Danler, whose much buzzed about debut novel “Sweetbitter” hits stores and e-readers on May 24, knows a few things about good taste. The Brooklyn-based writer paid her dues in the New York restaurant scene, working as a server at Union Square Cafe, Buvette and more highly regarded local hotspots.
Inspired by her time in the fast-pasted New York restaurant scene, “Sweetbitter” follows 22-year-old Williamsburg-residing Tess from her young start as a backwaiter at a prestigious Manhattan restaurant and her coming-of-age as a New Yorker.
