The Good Kind was created by chef/owner Tim McDiarmid, the food and entertaining visionary behind Tim the Girl Catering and Ivy Hall, an event venue in Southtown. Tim was raised in rural Canada, growing her own food. For Tim, “farm to table” isn’t a fad that might come and go out of style; it’s her history. After a decade working in some of the most visionary whole foods restaurants in New York City, Tim chose to settle down in sunny, laid-back San Antonio, then only on the cusp of its culinary revolution. A single mother, she wanted a flexible profession that would allow her to be with her son as well as focus on the wholesome, vibrant diet she’d always enjoyed. Tim the Girl Catering was born in 2011. Tim opened her first retail outpost, The Good Kind Café, in the Pearl’s Bottling Department food hall in 2017. In 2018, she opened a second Good Kind location, as well as took over the management of Ivy Hall, an eclectic venue space in San Antonio’s King William district.
