A little more than six years ago, David Chase cut to black, officially ending The Sopranos on HBO. Tony Soprano was seated at a booth in a restaurant in New Jersey, eating onion rings with his family and waiting for his daughter to finish parking her car and join them.
Now, a day after the sudden death of actor James Gandolfini, the Bloomfield, New Jersey ice cream parlor that served as the venue for Tony Soprano's last meal is paying tribute to the man that brought the character to life by reserving the table from that final scene in the late Gandolfini's honor.
Soon, fans flocked to the place to pay their respects.
