Take an Eating Tour of Taylor Swift’s New York City

Want to have dinner with Taylor Swift? (Of course you do.) Stop by some of the singer’s favorite N.Y.C. restaurants for a bite – and possible squad sighting

LA LANTERNA DI VITTORIO - With her boyfriend Tom Hiddleston busy working in Australia, the singer stopped by this Greenwich Village Italian cafe with pal Todrick Hall. “Taylor ordered two of our personal-size gourmet thin-crust pizzas - the Margherita and Rosetta De Lyo - with Gorgonzola and salami, two double French martinis, and for dessert, our individual signature tiramisu with vanilla gelato” a representative for the restaurant tells PEOPLE. Swift choose a belly-barring two-piece dress for their meal at the restaurant’s downstairs jazz bar and supper club, Bar Next Door.

THE SPOTTED PIG - Taylor Swift was spotted at the cozy West Village gastropub dining with former boyfriend Calvin Harris and buddy Ed Sheeran. This wasn’t Swift’s first rodeo at chef April Bloomfield’s beloved flagship – she ate at the restaurant with Kanye West earlier this year.

L'ASSO - Swift and Harris started off a whirlwind eating week at L'asso, a restaurant in the NYC’s Little Italy neighborhood. The two enjoyed a glass of wine each and two gluten-free pizzas.

SARABETH’S - Brunch basically requires the company of a best friend, which is why Swift brought bestie Karlie Kloss to eat at the Tribeca restaurant, known for its brunch menu and indulgent baked goods, last summer.

LAFAYETTE - A chic café with an expansive bistro-inspired menu, Lafayette, proved to be the ideal spot for a cozy lunch date between her and pal Tavi Gevinson in December.

BUBBY’S - Another great friend date destination? Bubby’s, a diner-style restaurant in her Tribeca neighborhood (that also happens to serve exquisite pie) – that’s where Swift and pal Lena Dunham met for a catch-up session last winter.

LEVAIN - The puffy, crispy-on-the-outside cookies of Levain Bakery are an N.Y.C. legend – they even had the power to turn Swift’s “day around,” she wrote in an Instagram post.

ANGELICA KITCHEN - Swift, who’s definitely not a vegetarian, happily dined at the vegan East Village eatery (yes, it’s just that good) last summer, and with hearty dishes like three bean chili and Thai coconut lemongrass curry, we doubt she missed the meat.

BURGER & BARREL - Swift made sure to get in some quality time with chef Josh Capon at Burger & Barrel, an upscale pub in Soho that serves top-notch burgers (the Mangalitsa pork burger is a game changer) and craft cocktails.

ALMANAC - For her 25th birthday in December, Swift celebrated in style with pals Cara Delevingne, Jaime King and many more at the “hyper-seasonal” West Village restaurant.

ABC COCINA - Sometimes a girl just needs some Latin soul food. The singer hit up chef Jean-George Vongerichten’s glam restaurant upon returning to New York after a pretty glam gig: performing at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show.

SHAKE SHACK - Swift grabbed burgers with BFF Lorde at the outdoor burger mecca in Madison Square Park in the fall of 2013.

LOCANDA VERDE - The singer is clearly a neighborhood girl, frequenting a high percentage of restaurants located in her Tribeca area. One of her favorites? Locanda Verde, a lively Italian spot from chef Andrew Carmellini.

Last Fall, an invitation to participate in the Image of the Studio exhibition at Cooper Union justified the creation of Franklyn toothbrushes, snapback hats, air fresheners and more.”
