Stopped in at Maiya's on a whim on an early Thursday evening in Marfa. We were asked if we had reservations and when we said no, we were given the option of dining at one lone table on the sidewalk out front. Fortunately it was pleasant out, and there was no breeze, and we were hungry. Ordered a glass of red wine but it immediately began attracting gnats, so many that we were swatting at them. Finally sent the wine back, to the dismay of the gnats.
Despite the rocky start (especially in light of the fact that there were so many empty tables inside), our food was fantastic. The server brought wonderful rustic bread to the table and we shared a caprese salad with capers. My entree was penne pesto and my husband had lasagna Florentine. We ate till the world looked level--both dishes were absolutely delicious. Wish Maiya's wasn't such a long way from Dallas. Maybe next time we'll get to sit inside.
