Maia, the new main restaurant at the Marco Island Marriott, opened September 2015 in the space formerly occupied by Tropiks. The light, open restaurant is in keeping with the resort's Balinese inspiration - blonde woods, white rock walls, faux wood tile floors, basket-weave chairs and chandeliers modeled after Polynesian fishing baskets. A breakfast buffet occupies a nook that includes an omelet station. One menu covers lunch and dinner, a succinct listing of dishes driven by ingredients sourced locally. For starters, there are a crab fondue made with aged gruyere and triple cream brie served with pretzel bread. Entrees include grouper asado with chorizo cassoulet, clams tagliatelle, grass-fed hanger steak with scallion hash and mushroom fricassee, and cider brined pork chop with a bourbon and maple glaze, onion jam, and warm fingerling potatoes and bacon salad.
