Cardinal Sage @ Stern inspired by Iliana de la Vega

Monday – Friday at Lunch

Prominent Mexican-born Chef Iliana de la Vega of Austin’s celebrated El Naranjo restaurant, incorporates her innovative Oaxacan flavors into the menu at Cardinal Sage, located at Stern Dining. The menus offer a range of modern Mexican favorites featuring slow-marinated meats, fresh house-made salsas, and flavorful rice and bean dishes cooked from scratch. Chef Iliana de la Vega's culinary genius was honored in 2022 with The James Beard Foundation's Best Chef award in the first-ever Texas category.
