Maiya's Restaurant: Great Food in a Small Town
Maiya's was kind of a surprise. The menu and ambience was not what you expect in a small town in West Texas. The menu includes such fare as a grilled Rib-eye Steak with Red Skinned Potatoes; North Atlantic Salmon; a Polenta Lasagna; and Chicken Agrodolce. Maiya's is open Wednesday through Saturday from 5 PM to 10 PM (excluding special events). Reservations are recommended. According to their website, Maiya's will be closed from September 3rd - 13th as well as November 27th and December 24th - 25th.
Favorite Dish: Try the Chicken Agrodolce

Maiya's: The best resteraunt in town
A very nice restaurant - with ambiance and food that would not be out of place in the trendy district of any large city. A sample menu is available on their website, but in general it runs toward well constructed American standards. Steak. Pasta. And a nice wine list
The Brown Recluse: A nice little breakfast joint / used bookstore
For breakfast on our last day (well, our only day) in Marfa we stopped by the Brown Recluse - a small coffee shop/used book store near downtown Marfa. Although everything is near downtown Marfa. The breakfasts were excellent (although we observed one crusty local sending back their French toast as too dry) and their homemade soft drinks (lemonade, lime aide) were even better.
When the check came, two hearty breakfasts were less than $13.
The restaurant is set up in an old bungalow, and the layout of the house was left intact. So you can eat in the living room, or bedroom, or kitchen...... In one room there were a lot of old books on shelves which we assumed were for sale, but I suppose it's possible they were just there to borrow as well.
