Ten restaurants are involved including one of the newest additions in Urbana: Louie's Dixie Kitchen. It just opened last month. Cajun-Creole food is on the menu there.
Owner Leah Pettit said Mondays are usually slow, but today has been busier than usual. She hopes people will be drawn in by the homey touches and enjoy the comfort food they serve up.
Another restaurant involved is Crane Alley. Head chef Brad Ledbetter said they're excited to be involved and show off the foods they make. He said a lot of their specials this week are perfect for splitting between two people.
