This week on WORD OF MOUTH, Leiti meets up with John Polarkoff from The Pines restaurant in Gowanus, Brooklyn, to talk parsnips. After the break, we're joined in the studio by Daniel Burns, chef and owner of Luksus at Torst in Greenpoint, and one of Platt's Top 5 Best New Chefs of 2014! Later, we catch up with Colin Tuska, wine director at Prospect Restaurant in Fort Greene. This program has been sponsored by Of A Kind. Today's music provided by Brothers NYC.
