Affordable Russian restaurants in DC/MD
I've looked on this board and googled around, and it seems like all the restaurants I've found (like Maxim and Balalayka) are now closed, except for Russia House at Dupont Circle. I've looked at their menu and it's more like Russian cuisine-inspired elaborate European-style concoctions than actual Russian food (with probably more Russian diplomats and business-type people than I care to encounter), whereas I'm looking for something more along the lines of the Moscow chain Elki-Palki, food-wise. Help?
Google tells me there's a deli called Sofia's International Restaurant on Industrial Parkway in Silver Spring - does anyone know what that is?
