As first reported by WBAL, the fast food giant and McCormick inked a deal that will offer an Old Bay-seasoned tartar sauce on Mickey D’s Filet-O-Fish. McDonald’s is already calling it the Old Bay Filet.

Mark Furr, who owns a McDonald’s franchise in Baltimore, helped inspire the dish. Starting next Monday (Feb. 16), it’ll be available at more than 700 locations across the Mid-Atlantic.
For now, the rest of the country will have to stick to “Maryland” “inspired” “crab” entrees at restaurants if they want an Old Bay fix.
