Stay (Carbo-) Hydrated

Where to wallow in pasta the night before the New York City Marathon.

  1. 1. Gusto

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

    Well-to-do carbo-loaders, take note: Chef Amanda Freitag is breaking out the pasta specials in anticipation of Marathon Sunday, including a potato gnocchi with shaved white truffle.

  2. 2. Becco

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

    Five words: unlimited tableside helpings of pasta.

  3. 3. Babbo

    110 Waverly pl., nr. MacDougal St.; 212-777-0303

    The eight-course pasta-tasting menu is the best thing to happen to the starchy stuff since tomato sauce.

  4. 4. Bar Stuzzichini

    928 Broadway, nr. 22nd St.; 212-780-5100

    This new Flatiron restaurant specializes in the bite-size appetizers called stuzzichini, but its pastas are pretty great, too.

  5. 5. Franny’s

    295 Flatbush Ave., nr. Prospect Pl., Prospect Heights; 718-230-0221

    Perfectionist chef Andrew Feinberg banned pasta from the kitchen for months because he thought his wasn’t up to snuff. He’s finally relented.
