A la 12ème Borne becomes À la 12 !
Veritable institution in the area of Metz, the hotel - restaurant made new skin.
Thomas FRANCOIS and his partner Laura ROLLIN take up the challenge to perpetuate the tradition of the family. After a family agreement, the Francois family, owners since the fifties have yielded the torch to Thomas, the son of Bernard, and Laura, implied in the life of the house for several years already.
In 2016, they undertake major renovations at the ground floor in order to create a new environment there. Beforehand, they took the time to acquire the experiment essential to the implementation of such a project by carrying out return tickets between the Moselle and Aveyron; with in particular a passage marking of three years in the Maison Bras in Laguiole and two years to the Café Bras in Rodez where they officiated as department heads.
With this experiment, in couple for almost ten years and “having grown“ together, they have wished more than all to mark a turning in the history of the house François and are honoured with being able to develop it. The realization of work made it possible to redefine spaces and to arrange the kitchen.
The distribution of the roles proved quite simple: Thomas is manager and chef while Laura takes care on the floor and the cellar
To continue in the same line, two distinct offers are always displayed. The emphasis will be placed on products of quality, prepared every day. A frank and alive kitchen, who is changing with the seasons…
