The Fish House - Fried Shrimp

There used to be a little fish place called The Fish House at Grand and LaSalle or Grand and Wells. To say it had the best fried shrimp ever cannot do justice to how good their fried shrimp was. If you ever had it, you know what I'm talking about. It closed about 5 years ago or so. Does anyone know what happened to it? It was a family-run place and I gather the Grand Avenue building was razed for development. The family decided not to re-locate, or at least that's what I recall at the time. Have they possibly re-opened somewhere else? Is there a recipe anyone can provide?

Keep in mind, I don't want to know about other restaurants' fried shrimp unless you know how good The Fish House was. It would be a crime against humanity for the Fish House fried shrimp recipe to disappear. Thanks.
