According to Yahoo Lifestyle, chef Clare Smyth made the 21-hour trip in case Swift felt like dining at her fine dining restaurant Oncore by Clare Smyth – which is located inside the Crown Sydney, where Swift is staying.

Swift, 34, has reportedly hired out the Crown’s presidential penthouse, which typically costs AUD $25,000 per night, and on Thursday her beau Travis Kelce arrived in Sydney to join her.

Speaking to Yahoo Lifestyle, an insider said Crown was so excited by the publicly generated by Swift’s stay that they are keen to make her stay a fairytale.

‘They’ve spared no expense, increased security and had staff sign NDAs to ensure her stay is nothing but perfection.’

The source claimed Irish-born Smyth planned to travel from the UK to Australia before Swift had even booked her stay at the Crown, just in case Swift decided to visit her restaurant while in Sydney.

Boasting breathtaking panoramic views of Sydney Harbour, Oncore by Clare Smyth has been named one of the top fifty restaurants in the world by the prestigious La Liste Awards.

Prices reach up to an eye-watering $330 for seven courses, plus $190 per person for wine pairings.

Smyth confirmed she had returned to Sydney on Wednesday, sharing a video of herself arriving at her restaurant.

‘Back in service with the team,’ wrote Smyth, who is the first and only female chef in Britain to hold three Michelin stars.

She later shared a picture of her colleague, chef Alan Stuart, preparing food in the kitchen wearing a stack of handmade friendship bracelets.

‘Alan Stuart getting excited about Taylor Swift’s concert!!’ she wrote, adding an audio clip of Swift’s hit song Style.

Swift is gearing up to perform four shows in Sydney from Friday, February 23 to Monday, February 26, with her boyfriend Travis expected to attend to support her.

Over 300,000 Swifties are expected to flock to Sydney’s Accor Stadium this weekend for her highly-anticipated Eras Tour concerts.
