Afternoon Tea ~ does anyone serve fresh from the oven scones and use real clotted cream?

We would like to go for Afternoon Tea and our favourite place in the past has been the St. Regis which has a beautiful setting. Unfortunately the last time we went their once beautiful scones, flakey and fresh from the oven, had been replaced by cold hard balls that, while fresh, were not the traditional scone I'd come to anticipate and drool over. A beautiful scone is my favourite part of Afternoon Tea. The other interesting thing is that it seems easy enough to find clotted cream at the grocery store in NYC nobody who does Afternoon Tea seems to serve it and they just whip up some heavy cream and put that in a dish. Now I can survive the cream issue but I'm just hoping someone has a suggestion for an Afternoon Tea with what I would call tradtiional scones.

Thanks for your advice as we are only in NYC for a few days and we don't have time to try many places.
