Beyond the greasy spoons, there are a few high-end restaurants in Marfa, including Jett's Grill at the Hotel Paisano, Texas Street and Highland Avenue (tel. 432/729-3838). Named after James Dean's character in Giant, the restaurant serves dinner only and features Continental fare spiced with a south-of-the-border twist. Main courses run $10 to $25. Another upscale option is Maiya's, 103 N. Highland Ave. (tel. 432/729-4410), offering a creative selection of northern Italian fare in a very sleek, very red space. It's open Wednesday through Saturday evenings, with most dishes between $15 and $30.
