Real estate pro Denise Warner tells the stories behind some of the area's best-kept treasures.
Denise Warner's office on Wisconsin Avenue.
After closing deals from the Wisconsin Avenue office of Long & Foster/Christie’s International for the better part of two decades, Denise Warner takes us on a tour of her ’hood.
“In Georgetown, there’s a story to be told everywhere you look. A walk by Jackie Kennedy’s N Street home concludes with sitting in the booth at Martin’s Tavern (1264 Wisconsin Ave. NW), where President Kennedy proposed. A climb on the ‘Exorcist stairs’ can be rewarded by a meal at the Tombs (1226 36th St. NW)."
“Patisserie Poupon (1645 Wisconsin Ave. NW) is the place to meet a friend for a quiet morning coffee and pastry or quiche."
“The happy hour at Sea Catch (1054 31st St. NW) is one of my favorites—I revel in the ambience and the amazing array of oysters. The wine tastings at Bistrot LePic (1736 Wisconsin Ave. NW) are delightful, the French cuisine blissful, and you can reserve the private dining room upstairs for a special occasion."

“In the wintertime, it’s wonderful to watch—with a glass of wine and a plate of seafood or steak—the ice skaters outside from the warm interior of Tony & Joe’s (3000 K St. NW) on the Georgetown Waterfront."
“And I love the quiet, elegant reading rooms of the Georgetown Library (3260 R St. NW). From its perch at the top of Book Hill, the view to the Potomac River is spectacular!”
