Currently the Executive Chef for Restaurant Associates at the Museum of Fine Arts, chef Tim Partridge oversees all culinary operations at the MFA including those at Bravo and the New American Café.

In 1995, Partridge left a successful career in environmental geology to pursue cooking.  He began his career working three shifts a week at the Classic Cup in Kansas City.  By early 1996, he returned to Massachusetts where he landed at Tosca with James Beard Award winner Ken Oringer.

After great success at Tosca, Partridge went to the East Coast Grill in Cambridge to work with acclaimed restaurateur and author Chris Schlesinger.  He served as line cook, sous chef and finally as Executive Chef.  In Early 1999 Schlesinger asked Partridge to open his new venture the Back Eddy in Westport, Massachusetts.

Boston Magazine called Perdix "the quintessential neighborhood restaurant" awarding it Best of Boston 2002.  Next Bon Appétit named it One of the Best Neighborhood Restaurants in September 2002. In addition, the Zagat Guide said "Food is the star at this wonderful new bistro: a tiny treasure that's easily a cut above the other local eateries."

In 2006, Patridge became involved with the Back Bay Restaurant Group where he was the Executive Chef for the Atlantic Fish Company and opening Executive Chef for Bouchee a 200 seat restaurant on Newbury Street in the Back Bay. During his tenure he was featured on the Phantom Gourmet, received a 3-star review from the Boston Globe, and was featured in the Boston Globe Magazine. His recipes have been seen in such publications as Shape, Boston Common Magazine and the Boston Globe.

In 2009 as Peartree Consulting, Partridge worked as a menu and catering consultant where he worked on Darryl's Corner Bar and Kitchen, Jerry Remy's Sports Bar and Grill, and Smoke and Pickles catering in Westport Massachusetts
