LOS FELIZ: The last we heard, the graffiti-strewn former Cap N Cork at the corner of Hillhurst and Prospect was to become the Desert Rose restaurant (rendering below). There was a hearing for an alcohol permit in September, but no word since. We don't see much construction, but found out building permits are still in limbo. But there are trucks! Seriously: What the hell is going on? **UPDATE: Per a tipster: "Construction workers said construction has started." OK, but more deets please.
