First cookie and ice cream

May 1, 2018

Interior and exterior construction work at Dino’s Cookie Dough Bar, 111 E. University Drive, in downtown Rochester, is underway as co-owner Dino Prapas revamps the former Krazy Greek restaurant into a new dessert destination aiming to open by mid-June. Opened more than 40 years ago as a Greek-style restaurant by George and Barbara Prapas, their son Dino said the new restaurant will feature 16 flavors of edible cookie dough and another 16 flavors of ice cream to allow for some creative desserts. “Its different. It’s trendy,” he said. “Hopefully, everyone will come in and try it to check it out.” Along with a menu overhaul, the property is receiving a new exterior facade, with the flat roof replaced with a gable facade to give the store an illusion of a second story on the outside and providing a cathedral ceiling for the dining room. A new storefront window along University, along with a faux chimney and new lighting, paint and fixtures will give the restaurant a new style to match its unique menu. The edible cookie dough bar concept is the first of its kind to the county, Prapas said, who hopes the menu will help make it a dessert destination spot.
