‘Sopranos’ diner honors James Gandolfini in classiest way possible
The diner where the infamous “fade to black” ending to The Sopranos took place has paid tribute to the fallen star, James Gandolfini, in the simplest but classiest way you could imagine.
The reserved sign is at Holsten’s ice cream parlor in Bloomfield, N.J. at the table that once served as Tony Soprano’s onion ring provider while his fate was left in limbo.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, hundreds of people filled the restaurant last night to pay tribute to the film and TV star who died of a heart attack during a vacation to Rome.
