Here is a totally brand-new list of places to carb and calorie load before and after the big race. It's a good mix of both established and new places to eat in Memphis. Check out last year's 13 Places to Carb Load for the St. Jude Memphis Marathon 2013 edition, too.
1. Ciao Bella (565 Erin Drive)
Ciao Bella is a family-run Italian restaurant in East Memphis with pizza, pastas, sandwiches, and more for lunch and dinner. Try their new Piccolo Sara pasta with penne, goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes, and spinach, then add chicken or shrimp if you like.
