Avgotaraho - sources in the US

Has anyone found sources for avgotaraho in the US, particularly in the Northeast? I have seen similar products, Bottarga/Boutargue, but they are not quite the same as the waxed greek version. There also seems to be a bit of confusion with the descriptions on these products as I have seen the Greek, Italian and French names used interchangeably even thought the Greek product is quite different (and more expensive).
the current issue of The Art of Eating, an incredible independant food magazine, has a huge article on avgotaraho. in the back of the magazine it lists Seattle distributor and online retailer Cucina Fresca as a source at $100 a half pound plus shipping.
enjoy and feel free to buy me some too- looks incredible as described in the article. enjoy fb
Thank you for the recommendation. I am hoping to find a supplier in New York or Boston so I will not have to have the package shipped. We have had a few mishaps with damaged or delayed deliveries of perishable items. As good as the sellers are about replacing these packages, I hate the idea of these wonderful foods going to waste and I had to scramble for close substitutes when our Spanish boquerone arrived more than a day late in the ninety degree weather... Needless to say the packaging was not up to the task, especially after being repacked by the carrier.
