Booth where Tony Soprano had his final meal is ‘reserved’

Taylor Bigler Entertainment Editor

The restaurant where Tony Soprano and his family ate in the final scene of “The Sopranos” has reserved the booth where the family sat.

Holsten’s ice cream parlor in Bloomfield, N.J. placed a “Reserved” sign on the booth out of respect for James Gandolfini, who died Wednesday in Italy of an apparent heart attack, the New York Post reports.

In the famous last scene of the series, Gandolfini plays Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” on the jukebox as his family enters the restaurant one-by-one until the screen abruptly cuts to black.

Holsten’s owner Chris Carley told the Post that fans flocked to the restaurant Wednesday just to get a glimpse of where Tony had his last meal.

Carley said that Gandolfini was a “regular guy.”

“During his down time, he’d be outside smoking a big cigar, talking to people. He seemed like real regular guy,” Carley said.
