George Mahe has been St. Louis Magazine’s dining editor since 2006. Originally a finicky eater (“I was 21 before I got off Trix”), Mahe has owned or operated restaurants most of his life. He began reviewing them for SLM almost 20 years ago (under the pseudonym Arnie Boye, after his dog), and was the magazine’s dining editor in 1992 and 1993. His insight into restaurants spawned a local restaurant consulting company, but when SLM sought a freelance food writer in 2006, Mahe responded and was given his old job back. In addition to managing the Flavor section of the magazine's print edition, he curates SLM's food, wine, and spirits blog and contributes to the weekly e-newsletter On the Burner. George resides in University City with his wife, Suzi.
