What do you cook when you don't know everyone's palate?

What is/are your fallback, tried-and-true, everyone-loves-it menu item(s)? When we entertain, we usually have a good idea of palates, but there is the occasion when someone says they just don't care what we serve or when I can't find out their dislikes.

Here's my generic please 'em menu:

strawberry salad (on fresh spinach with almonds)
chicken dish (usually baked, like a piccata)
meatless pasta (e.g., mushrooms, tomatoes, olive oil, spinach)
some kind of steamed veggie
bread
dessert can be anything from sorbet to a cake

Curious about your choices, since I'm looking for more creative alternatives to my main dishes.
