It’s been just over a week since the celeb-favorite L.A. import Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf opened up in Times Square, and already such notables as Charlotte Ronson, Stacey Bendet Eisner, and Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark star Reeve Carney have braved the masses for a cuppa, reports “Page Six.” The gossips over at the Post also have it that the chain is planning an Upper West Side location. That was fast! Perhaps they’re hoping to take on Dunkin’? [Page Six/NYP, Earlier]
