Is there a single word or a phrase that means the most popular one of some set of service tiers/offerings? For example a service provider asks "Do you want Deluxe, Premium or Gold?" then instead of asking them back which one is the most popular, one can simply respond with something like "Give me X" and that would imply the most popular one.

  • "top seller" ... "flavor of the day" ..... might be a humorous way of putting it but it often means "special offering on the menu" etc – Tom22 Apr 30 '17 at 1:15
  • Your own most popular works well there. Are you looking for something more specific? "Give me the special" works sometimes and it might be correlated with popularity, but some might object on the grounds of causality. "The hottest item" works, but it might be ambiguous in a restaurant setting. – Lawrence May 29 '17 at 6:33
  • For books and related products, you can also ask for their bestseller though (strangely enough), it doesn't necessarily imply their best selling product. – Lawrence May 29 '17 at 9:51
