Order-off-menu (NO Carts) Dim Sum places... Any Recs?

Hi, I'm looking for solid dim sum places where you order off the menu. No carts.

Anywhere in and around NYC, including Queens, Westchester, northern & central NJ. Also, it'd be great if you could let me know whether the place you recommend has bbq pork pastry (char siu so).

I'm not a fan of carts because: 1).you can't plan out your meal well and tend to get a lot of wrong things; 2).can't focus on eating cuz you're always on the lookout; 3).food's not always as fresh; 4).sometimes the cart lady stamps the wrong price category. By the way, every single great dim sum place I've been to in Hong Kong was menu-based, no carts.

Anyways, thanks a lot in advance!!!
