in town for the marathon Oct 11-14, where to carb load with pasta? and other recommendations

Hi all,

Coming in for the marathon Fri Oct 11 - Mon 14.

On the Friday night, I will be dining alone. Would love to try Girl and the Goat, goosefoot, or Grace, but all are full on OpenTable (or don't have solo diner resos) From the options that I can find available, I'm deciding between Blackbird and Acadia... Thoughts? How are these for solo diners? I'm up for other suggestions. I will probably make a reservation at one and try for an early walk-in at GatG.

On the Saturday, I plan to carb load! Where is good for pasta? I'm staying at Hotel Burnham, if that makes a difference.

After running 26 miles, on Sunday I'm planning to eat a lot at either The Publican or Frontera Grill (or both) with a few friends. Recommendations for after-dinner drinks near each would be helpful too.

Will be heading back to Toronto on the Monday but am looking for a good breakfast/brunch spot that is serving on Mondays.

Thanks!
