Is there anything better than a hot guy who can cook? The short answer is “no.” When you can have breakfast in bed served to you by some guy with chiseled abs and tousled hair, things don’t get much better than that. And that’s exactly why we’re obsessed with Peruvian New York City chef Franco Noriega.
The Peruvian native snagged a super hot spread in the New York Post yesterday advertising his hot bod, gorgeous face, and Lower East Side restaurant Baby Brasa set to open this Saturday.
Trust me… I ran… real fast…
The 27-year-old first moved to New York to become an actor in 2007, but in 2009 he was discovered by fashion photographer Mario Testino, who also noticed just how fine he was. Naturally, his profession shifted from being a poor actor to becoming a poor, hot model.
Then in 2014, Noriega went to culinary school and opened a restaurant in Lima, Peru. He describes his food as clean and healthy, and his LES restaurant will be his first New York establishment. But the best detail of this man’s life is that he can’t manage to keep his shirt on.
“I’m always shirtless,” he told the New York Post. “I go into stores shirtless.” Hopefully he keeps that mentality when walking around his new restaurant.
