Roasted meats: Oxley's Carvery
Get your meat and two veg at this Nolita nook, which doles out carvery staples under the guise of a British butcher's shop. While the bowler-hat--sporting staff isn't wielding any cleavers behind the counter, they do slice a selection of roasted meats to your liking (leg of lamb, pork shoulder, rump steak), served alongside authentic sides such as puffy Yorkshire puddings and rosemary-kissed new potatoes. The sausages, too, are serious business—juicy, coarsely ground bangers custom-made based on a traditional Lincolnshire recipe. But the takeout-shop setup is most conducive to grabbing a sandwich for the road. Along with pressed toasties (English-style panini, $10.50), Oxley's delivers a turkey two-hander that recalls an English Christmas dinner: a massive, flour-dusted white-bread bun cradling generous slices of moist poultry, savory homemade stuffing and chunky cranberry sauce. At $7, it's one of the 'hood's best lunch deals. 202A Mott St between Kenmare and Spring Sts (212-343-0550)
