The former Champps restaurant (R.I.P.) next to Ridgedale Center is slated to become a wine bar, grocer and liquor store.

Driving the news: Top Ten Liquors has submitted plans to the city of Minnetonka, saying it will serve by-the-glass wines and small plates in a restaurant, plus operate a full-service liquor store.

Context: Top Ten is a fast-growing local liquor store chain. It's opened stores in Rosemount, Plymouth and Vandnais Heights in the past year, and now has 12 Twin Cities outposts.

What's next: A public hearing on the proposed store is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 4.
