bad dish at sweetwater!

i went to sweetwater last night for the first time... very cute restaurant, nice atmosphere. we started with mussels which were good (they also give out rosemary focaccia which was just okay), and then my friend had a burger (which he loved). unfortunately i chose as my main course what was described as "skate with radiccio, white beans and brown butter." perhaps i am a neophyte when it comes to eating skate, but it was prepared like a giant french fry and it was and SOOO greasy! i wanted to blot it with my napkin! the beans and radiccio underneath were swimming in pools of the brown butter, too, and altogether the whole thing kind of nauseated me. i am sad because as a whole the menu looked great and i want to go back, but it left a bad taste in my mouth. did any non-meat eaters/pescatarians have a better dish than i did?
