  • Taylor Swift hanging out at Fido
A few years ago, Steve Haruch wrote about how then-teenage Taylor Swift liked pizza, The Old Spaghetti Factory, and Bricktop's — but not sushi. At the time, I defended her likes and dislikes — she was still a teenager, to be fair — and I'll still admit not being a fan of sushi at that age (and to being quite the fan of Memphis' The Spaghetti Warehouse). Having access to the world's finest foods does not really have an effect on the teenage palate.

Taylor is all grown up now; today is her 23rd birthday. (Happy birthday, Taylor!). Times and tastes have changed for her and, as reported in the December issue of Vanity Fair, Taylor is now on board with sushi, citing Japanese food as her weakness at favorite restaurants such as Nobu and Yellowtail at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas. OK, so she didn't say sushi specifically, but if she's going to Yellowtail and not eating sushi, that's just criminal. Yes, even by this vegetarian's standards.

Of local interest, she gave a shout-out to Fido, Burger Up, Pancake Pantry and The Silly Goose as her "favorite neighborhood restaurants" (ostensibly, "neighborhood" by New York City standards). Bricktop's, though appears to have fallen off her list.

But lest we think she's gotten too highfalutin, she also notes that Dairy Queen's Cookie Dough Blizzard is one of her favorite desserts. And her favorite snack is nachos. Frankly, I can't argue with any of her picks.
