classics week logoFor Classics Week, four D.C. restaurants are offering specials inspired by menu items of the restaurant's past.

Quarry House is bringing back The Grotto Grill as an Eater special this week, and it's a menu item full of history. It had been on the bar's menu during the 70s as a tribute to the original name of the Quarry House. Back then, it was an 8 oz mushroom swiss burger. The new version is the bar's steakhouse burger with red wine, cremini mushrooms and a swiss cheese fondue.

It's priced at $9.34. Why the random dollar amount? It's a reference to 1934, the year the bar officially opened (they were actually a speakeasy before that during the 20s, but as owner Jackie Greenbaum says, Hey, who's counting?). Find it all week at Quarry House.
