I have tried to replicate it by sense memory. Maybe you would have better luck with finding 
a genuine recipe. Thanks,

Hello Richard,

I cannot find any mention of a "Scandinavia Restaurant" in Los Angeles. I think you mean the "Scandia Restaurant" at 9040 Sunset Boulevard, that featured Scandinavian cuisine. However, I cannot find any mention of them serving a dish called "Crab Dante" or "Crabmeat Dante" or "Crab Meat Dante". I could not find a dish with any of those names at all. I found a scan of a Scandia menu online here: LA Weekly.

There is no listing for an appetizer called "Crabmeat Dante", but under the heading "Appetizers - The Hot Delights", I found this listing:

The Mushrooms with Deviled Crab: Fresh crabmeat cooked with shallots and mustard stuffed into mushroom caps.

I searched for, but could not find, any recipe for Scandia's "mushrooms stuffed with deviled crab". Sorry.  There are other crabmeat stuffed mushrooms recipes on the web, with a variety of mustards and cheeses. See these sites:

Wow, thank you. Scandia. That was the dish, thank you. They must have changed the name to Dante 
on a later menu. I really appreciate your trying.
