Is there a food equivalent of the little black dress?

Is there a LBD equivalent? You know, something that could be served anywhere, any time and (assuming it's cooked well) would be appropriate, personalizable, even stunning in its simplicity?

So far I've come up with roast chicken, chocolate chip cookies, prime rib and chocolate cake. Is there a vegetarian or vegan LBD?
