Rosedale is tucked away in the charming Navarre Neighborhood, which sits between Lakeview and Mid-City. We are very near many local attractions and landmarks, such as City Park, New Orleans Museum of Art, Lafitte Greenway and Bayou St. John. The Canal Street streetcar can get you here easily from downtown. No matter how you arrive, you’ll be served the freshest, locally sourced ingredients, tastily transformed and served by our friendly, knowledgable staff.
Both the building and site where Rosedale is situated have historic significance. The building is the former Third District Police station and served Lakeview, West End and Gentilly for over 50 years. The Third District moved out in the 1980s and the building was repurposed as a Crime Prevention Office until post-Katrina. It was built in 1936 and was originally located on the banks of the New Basin Canal before being moved to its present location in 1951. The station had 5 holding cells, which can still be seen in the restrooms and office. The site itself was previously home to the Girod Asylum (built in 1870) and eventually the Colored Waifs Home, where Louis Armstrong learned to play the trumpet in 1913.
