EaterWire: Desert Rose Pending, Tiger Lily Splitting, Musha Closed for Renovations, James Beard Weekend

LOS FELIZ: Above is a rendering for the Desert Rose restaurant proposed for the vacant Hillhurst/Prospect. Our brothers at Curbed note the hideous glass rose at the front of the building claiming it the first entry for next year's Ugliest Building Contest. Thoughts? [Curbed LA]

LOS FELIZ: Eating L.A. has it that Tiger Lily---a restaurant surprisingly not on the Deathwatch---will split in two, and a new French restaurant (backed by someone from Figaro across the street) will take over one spot. Yes, too much space was the issue. [Eating L.A.]

SANTA MONICA: A weeping Hound found Musha closed "for renovations" this week, which we all know could mean any sort of shut down from the Department of Health. Or it could really be a renovation. But good news: The owner told us the izakaya will reopen by Wednesday. [EaterWire/Chowhound]

LOS ANGELES: In addition to the Wolfgang Puck mega smorgasbord going on at Red Seven and Universal Studios this weekend, the James Beard Foundation will also be in the house with a special dinner by Michael Cimarusti and Michel Richard on Friday night at Providence, and a Nancy Silverton cooking demo and book signing at Williams-Sonoma in Beverly Hills on Saturday. Chef spotting will reach all-time highs this weekend. [EaterWire]
