(Newser) – Amid all the tributes to the late James Gandolfini, a New Jersey ice cream parlor came up with one of the most fitting. The owner of Holsten's in Bloomfield put up a "reserved" sign at the booth where the final scene of The Sopranos was shot, reports the New York Post. “During his down time, he’d be outside smoking a big cigar, talking to people," recalls Chris Carley. "He seemed like a real regular guy." To read about how Gandolfini changed television, see Jessica Winter's appreciation at Slate.
