Taylor Swift strikes again with yet another sweet and kind gesture! The superstar singer delighted the staff of a Philadelphia restaurant with free show tickets and a whopping $500 tip after dining there following her appearance last Friday at Lincoln Financial Field.
The owner of Ralph's Italian Restaurant, Edward Rubino, was happy to discuss Swift's visit, calling her an "amazing person." He disclaimed that his kids know more about Swift that he does — "I'm more into Ozzy, that's my generation," he joked — but noted that she was "profoundly accommodating and very approachable."
Rubino reported that Swift and her entourage — including tourmates Ed Sheeran and Austin Mahone — arrived around 11:30 p.m. and finished their meal around 2 a.m. They posed for a photo with the restaurant staff before leaving.
"She had chicken Parmesan — it was almost as big as her! She did a pretty good job with it!" Rubino joked. He added that she also tried a tomato salad as an appetizer, but passed on the restaurant's extensive wine list: "It was late."
Security blocked off the road, but once word got out that Swift was eating there, "There were a lot of people outside; she had to leave through the back door."Read More »from Some Service! Taylor Swift Leaves Whopper of a Tip at Italian Restaurant
