The Restaurant Group is to open two outlets at Merepark's six-acre development behind Liverpool Central Station, Renshaw Street and Bold Street.
Mexican restaurant Chiquito will trade from 5,000 sq ft and American-Italian diner Frankie & Benny's 4,400 sq ft from the Boardwalk building that will also contain an Odeon cinema.
Ian Jones, director at Merepark, said: "It's always been our intention to create a high-quality scheme with widespread appeal. These lettings show that Central Village is an attractive proposition, capable of bringing new restaurant and leisure operators into the city."
Work is underway on the scheme which is expected to be completed in 2013. There are also pre-lets in place with Accor, Q-Park and Millennium & Copthorne.
Savills and CBRE are joint leisure agents for Merepark's Central Village.
