Definition:

(noun) : a restaurant in which servings of cooked meat are carved at the request of each diner

"Get your meat and two veg at this Nolita nook, which doles out carvery staples under the guise of a British butcher's shop. The bowler-hat–sporting staff slice a selection of roasted meats to your liking (leg of lamb, pork shoulder, rump steak), served alongside authentic sides such as puffy Yorkshire pudding and rosemary-kissed new potatoes." – restaurant review in TimeOut New York, June 12, 2011
