That San Francisco-style... drain.

Where can I get a replacement San Francisco-style 5" square drain cover? You know, the kind that looks like this
that you see every 20 feet embedded directly in the sidewalk.

The drain cover of that style in our garage is broken, corroded, and looks generally awful. We're having some flooring work done, and now is the time to replace it. The problem: the flooring people don't know where to get them either, and I'd prefer to not have to call a plumber.
I've looked at Home Depot, but they don't appear to have them. If I search for them online, I get square drain covers that clearly aren't the same as whatever standard's been in place here for years. Yet you can't throw a stone in this city without hitting one!
Any help appreciated, thanks.
