McDonald’s Testing Snow Crab Sandwich at San Francisco Bay Area Restaurants

McDonald’s is classing up the joint by introducing a snow crab sandwich, which is being served at four San Francisco Bay Area restaurants.

It’s at least the second attempt by the burger maker to tap into the Bay Area food scene for inspiration. In May, the company unveiled the made-to-order Gilroy Garlic Fries, made with garlic from Gilroy, California. The garlic fries were served in four restaurants in South Bay.

If successful, the snow crab sandwich could pose a threat to the old McDonald’s standard: The everlasting Filet-O-Fish.

The sandwich was created with the help of local chef Ryan Scott, who has appeared on Top Chef and The Rachel Ray Show among others. It consists of crab meat mixed with celery and seasoned mayo on romaine lettuce and tomato, atop a sourdough bun.
