About us


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, knowledgeable staff.

Restaurant & Bar


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 site itself was originally the home to the waifs home which is where Louis Armstrong learned to play the trumpet in 1913.

Susan Spicer began her cooking career in New Orleans and subsequently travelled throughout Europe and California before returning to New Orleans. In 1990, she collaborated with Regina Keever to open French Quarter fine-dining destination Bayona, much to the delight of diners and critics alike.

In 2010 she opened Mondo, a casual, family-style restaurant with a focus on global flavors, in her home neighborhood of Lakeview.

In 2018 he was excited about the opportunity to once more work with Susan at Rosedale. Jonas came on board under former General Manager Jenni Rainosek. He leveraged his management and relationship skills to elevate the customer experience at Rosedale.
