The Sopranos' Last Supper — Holsten’s

One of the most amusing tidbits coming out of the instant online deconstruction of Sunday night’s final Sopranos episode was that Holsten’s, where Tony and his family were to share what might just have been their Last Supper, is a real place. I thought Carmela was just mispronouncing Houston’s, but when Tony sat down in a booth and began flipping through the miniature jukebox, it was clear it was a neighborhood joint: a corner diner in Bloomfield, New Jersey, in business since 1939, whose website — www.holstens.com — is charmingly ungrammatical: “Enjoy New Jersey’s Old Fashion Ice Cream Parlour.”
