Downtown for two nights, including Men's NCAA finals, where to eat? April 5th

Staying at the W Hotel downtown Atlanta and need ideas for some tasty restaurants. It doesn't have to be BLT Steak or a white tablecloth but the four of us do want to sit and eat some good food and perhaps have a bar in the restaurant to watch the men's NCAA finals Monday night after dinner. We will have a car and would prefer not to drive more than 10 or 15 minutes is possible.
The concierge at the W mentioned Stats to me on the phone. In looking at the menu it appears ok and moderately priced, but I read another post on the board that said the food wasn't good, nor was the service.

Other mentions on the board for downtown restaurants that I've read include:
FAB French American Bistro (which I normally shy away from fancy french and their smaller artsy portions)
Rathbun's Steakhouse is mentioned as a short 10 minute drive but worth it.
Azio's on International?
Social seems to get good reviews as a local favorite downtown.
ROOM in the 12 Hotel.

Appreciate any input.

Lastly, we'll be driving up to Augusta to watch a practice round Tuesday. I have tickets but if anyone has any local hints on traffic, parking etc I'm all ears. My map says its 146 miles over to Augusta.
