Noriega has been using his perfectly toned body for, what else, modeling. The Peruvian statue has been seen walking the runways for Dolce & Gabbana long before he opened a restaurant. ??????

Noriega has opened not one, but two restaurants in New York City this year.

On May 26, he opened Baby Brasa in the Lower East Side. On June 6, Brasa opened in South Williamsburg. The concept of the restaurant is Peruvian rotisserie chicken with a focus on clean eating.

“I’m used to eating clean and healthy,” Noriega told Eater about his restaurant concept. “I’m basically doing that here.”

The model, who at one point wanted to be actor, actually comes from a long line of culinary professionals. According to his interview with Eater, his parents owned several restaurants around Lima, Peru.

Even though he is making some moves in the food world of NYC, his modeling career will not be put on hold.

28 Thoughts All Chismosas Have


28 Thoughts All Chismosas Have

When you’re a true, grade-A chismosa, you tend to have gossip on your mind just a little…

RUDE. OK, let’s see what goes through a true chismosa’s head during the course of a day:

1. My chisme radar is tingling! Somewhere out there, chisme is brewing…

2. Hmm. What are those two talking about over there?

3. Damn, I wish I could read lips.

4. … and read minds.

5. … and turn invisible so I can just hang around while people are talking.

6. Wait, is that creepy?

7. Omg, Fulana has her “I have chisme for you” look on!

8. (Yes, it’s definitely a look.)

9. Yes! The two most beautiful words ever: “TENGO CHISME.”

10. OK, I can’t believe Fulana is making me wait for chisme.

11. Making someone wait for chisme is LITERAL TORTURE.

12. It should be illegal.

13. Like, I’m calling the police.

14. And when someone says “… oh, and don’t tell anyone”?

15. Like. Are you kidding me?

16. You know I can’t keep this chisme to myself!

17. What if I just give hints about the chisme?

18. Like “Blue’s Clues,” but for gossip.

19. If someone figures it out on their own, I’m not really TELLING it, right?

20. Aw yiss, my neighbors are arguing.

21. ? ? ?

22. I’ll just lean casually against this window, all casual-like.

23. God, I’m so good at this. 

24. Chisme is my main source of vitamins and electrolytes.

25. Oh wait, now I have to pretend not to have already heard this chisme.

26. Look, it’s not my fault people trust me with their stories.

27. … and everyone else’s, too.

28. God, I love chisme.
