You are right, its not Mondo Grass. But, you should be able to gently pull all the dead leaf blades out from under the plant, like cleaning up an evergreen Daylily. After that, its a matter of waiting for new growth.

It's Fescue grass (Festuca)
It's a clumping grass that gets ratty after a few years. Try cutting it back to about 3" tall and it will probably come back.
