When I consider what this book is about I believe that it’s about the inward absolute entirety of an eatery in Union Square in NYC. However…it’s unquestionably not about the beautiful parts of an eatery. It’s about connections and drugs and tacky hard lumpy work. The story is Tess’ story…a 22 year old recently transplanted New Yorker who knows nothing about this eatery or any restaurant…for that matter. Tess is at this eatery working and learning. She crashed into the city with $146.00 in her ledger and the name of a conceivable flat mate and as opposed to being a barista she lands a low level position here…at the eatery.
