Dans vs. en regarding a street

The instructions say: When referring to the street, road, avenue, or boulevard people live on (using habiter), you can either use dans la/le, simply la/le or nothing at all.

  

The three examples from the explanation page were J'habite la rue Pasteur; J'habite rue Pasteur;  J'habite dans la rue Pasteur , all following the instructions.  

However, in the quiz, Mon restaurant est en La Rue du Temple is given as a correct answer.  I did not choose this sentence as En was not mentioned in the instructions nor in the examples.  Is the difference between "habite" - living on the street vs. having a business on the street?  Thank you.
