Finnish, Norwegian, Russian or Bolivian Restaurants in NE?!

I spent years living in the above countries and long for some of their culinary specialties. I know that is is long shot, but I thought I'd give it a try. I couldn't find a Finnish restaurant in NYC and went through the Bolivian Consulate to find one in Queens. I'm hoping someone knows a little family-run spot somewhere in NE. I travel several times a year to the NYC/PA area and would happily plan a detour if some little gem can be found.
Thanking you in advance.

Kiitos, Takk, Gracias

  1. Info on Swedish bakeries:

    Also, on the Boston board, enter a search for "Russian" and you'll get a list of posts. The newest ones are from 2006 but it's a start.

    1. The main Russian places in Boston are Stoli and Cafe Samovar in Brookline Village, Victor's in Washington Sq. (both areas of Brookline) and Cafe St. Petersburg in Newton Centre. There are several Russian markets.

      There's Sweet Finnish bakery in Jamaica Plain but just sweets (and some sandwiches).

      There's a Colombian restaurant in Allston (Camino Real) plus El Cafetal but don't know if this crosses with Bolivian at all.
