Long Beach Carbo Load

I am running the Long Beach Marathon this Sunday. Any recommendations for a decent dinner (pasta, salad preferred) that is casual, affordable, and not a chain!

  1. This was asked earlier. Seal Beach may be a bit far, but Finbars makes good New Jersey style pastas, lasagne and spaghetti notably. There is also one in Costa Mesa.

    1. Good luck!!! I ran that race last year. Luckily I didn't have to look for a restaurant because I ate at the Team In Training pre-race party. Here is another pre-LBC race carbo-load thread with some suggestions.
