The Grill Room knows how to capitalize on Frank Ruta's following from his time at Palena. The chef (whose burger at the now-shuttered Palena used to be considered the city's best by many) has developed a whole menu of burgers for the Georgetown hotel restaurant.
The options include a mortadella burger, the classic Grill Room Burger (which was on the menu before), a duck egg burger and a bacon burger. All are $22. Later this summer, they'll debut a $24 Colonial burger featuring Randall Lineback beef.
