Russian in Riverdale

Don't get me wrong, there's a lot of good things to be said about Riverdale, nice views, beautiful houses, lots of space for the money, and it's all relatively convenient to Manhattan. One big problem; there just aren't many good, Chowhound style eateries up here. I just discovered one promising place. A Russian take out deli on Mosholu Avenue just west of the Russian consulate. I don't know the name but, it is adjacent to a now closed Russian restaurant called something like "Varneske". I just tried the piroschkes(cabbage and meat) and a beet salad today and they were very authentic and great. There's tons more homemade food and a huge selection of smoked fish, caviar, etc. all of which I'm dying to check out. Does anyone out there have other suggestions or knowledge about this place or other chowhound opportunities in Riverdale?
