Carbo Loads

As great a tradition as running the New York City Marathon is, so too the pre-race pasta orgy.

  1. 1. Becco

    355 W. 46th St., nr. ninth Ave.; 212-397-7597

    Nothing against Tavern on the Green’s marathon-eve Barilla binge, but $21.95 buys unlimited helpings of the three pastas of the day at this theater-district trattoria.

  2. 2. Gusto Ristorante e Bar Americano

    60 Greenwich Ave., at Perry St.; 212-924-8000

    The young and talented new chef Amanda Freitag makes pasta like an old Italian grandmother.

  3. 3. Babbo

    110 Waverly Pl., nr. Macdougal St.; 212-777-0303

    Order the eight-course pasta-tasting menu with optional paired wines, and then consider just walking the 26.2 miles.

  4. 4. Teodora

    141 E. 57th St., nr. Lexington Ave.; 212-826-7101

    Start with the piadina, and then go for one of the best lasagnes in town.
